Bronwen Hruska Named Publisher of Soho Press

sohop23.jpgToday Soho Press named Bronwen Hruska publisher of the press. Her mother, publisher and co-founder Laura Hruska, will remain editor-and-chief of the press.

Bronwen Hruska has worked as an associate publisher at the press since 2008. She graduated from Yale and the Columbia School of Journalism. She has written for the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, and the Village Voice. Laura Hruska has been at Soho Press for 24 years, publishing a slate of authors that included: Edwidge Danticat, Sara Gran, Qiu Xiaolong, and Cara Black.

The new publisher had this statement: “I’ve always been on the writing and editing end of things, so my learning curve over the past 18 months has been huge … Obviously it’s a challenging moment to break into publishing, but it’s also a moment filled with exciting prospects and possibilities. I remain in awe of my mother for what she’s built, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to take Soho into the next decade and beyond.”
