New York Times Names Gilbert Cruz Its New Books Editor

From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson headlined “The New York Times selects Gilbert Cruz as its next Books editor”:

The New York Times named Gilbert Cruz as its Books editor, tasking him with transforming the newspaper’s book review “for the digital age.”

Mr. Cruz has been the Culture editor at The Times since January 2018, in charge of arts and culture coverage, including the Arts & Leisure print section in the Sunday paper.

Mr. Cruz replaces Pamela Paul, who was the editor of The New York Times Book Review for nine years before becoming an Opinion columnist in April.
