New Yorker Hires 26-Year-Old Managing Editor

26-year-old Amelia Lester is joining the New Yorker as managing editor, the New York Observer reports.

Lester was previously an editor at the Paris Review and also previously served as a fact-checker at…the New Yorker.

The Harvard grad’s replacing Kate Julian, who is moving with her husband (who just got a new job) to Washington, D.C.

So…we didn’t graduate from Harvard, but we’re almost 26. Does that mean we can work for the New Yorker too? Pretty please, Remnick?
