NYT Journos To Hold Quora ‘Office Hours’

In what may be the best use of q&a site Quora thus far, three New York Times reporters will be holding question and answer sessions on the site to talk about their new books (which Bill Keller tongue-in-cheekily wishes his employees would stop writing).

The first will be tomorrow, when Diana B. Henriques answers questions about Wizard of Lies, her book about Bernie Madoff.

Gretchen Morgenson and Adam Bryant will follow on July 26 and August 2, respectively.

According to Times digital initiatives boss Jim Schachter, Diana is already addressing Madoff-related questions that have already been posted to the site. Sadly, this doesn’t yet appear to be true (hey, managing daily deadlines and mucking around on Quora takes time) but we’ll keep an eye out.
