Quotes from the news wire:
I feel like I lived to see my memorial, i heard this more than once :' It's great for you personally, and it's great for Condé Nast, and it's great for magazines. But it's a loss for book publishing.' I had been a champion of Black voices in particular and people of color in general and just quality publishing for a long time.
Some of the people I talked to were people of color who felt that they were listened to, that they were respected, that there's obviously work to be done, but those challenges didn't scare me away from this opportunity. Honestly, most American companies of a certain size and of a certain length of existence have this work to do.
