Publishers Weekly has promoted New England correspondent Judith Rosen to bookselling editor. In September, Rosen will begin to cover the rapidly changing world of bookselling in addition to her New England coverage.
She will report to co-editorial director Jim Milliot. Rosen has written for the industry magazine since 1998. Her publishing career began at MIT Press and Beacon Press, but she has also worked at Harvard Book Store and WordsWorth Books.
Publishers Weekly owner George Slowik had this statement: “What is great about her approach to the topic is it will include all aspects of bookselling unconfined by type of store or even walls for that matter. Books make their way into the hands of readers in many unconventional manners and we intend to explore and illuminate those paths.”
