Bookforum Is Closing, Leaving Fewer Publications Devoted to Books

From a New York Times story by Kate Dwyer and Elizabeth A. Harris headlined “Bookforum Is Closing, Leaving Ever Fewer Publications Devoted to Books”:

The literary magazine Bookforum announced on Monday that its current issue would be its last, dealing a significant blow to literary journalism, which has been vastly diminished in recent years.

“We are so proud of the contribution Bookforum has made to the literary community,” the magazine said on Twitter after announcing its closure, “and are immensely grateful to the advertisers, subscribers and booksellers who made our mission possible over the years.”
