The New York Times Names Online Books Editor

The New York Times has named John Williams as its new Online Books Editor. At the Times, he’ll be responsible for the Paper Cuts blog, which was folded into the larger Arts Beat blog in February.

The announcement was made by fellow books editor, Alex Star, on Twitter earlier today.

Star told the New York Observer that Williams will be “adding new features to it [Paper Cuts] that he’ll both be writing and editing.”
