On Twitter today, Library Journal managing editor Heather McCormack broke the news that she was promoted to book review editor at Library Journal.
She wrote to her Twitter fans: “It’s surreal & humbling. I will do my best to serve librarians. Let’s talk as always.”
Here’s a recent review McCormack (pictured) wrote of Gail Buckland’s Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955-Present: “[T]he way the author contextualized what might be a dead movement moved me even more toward that destiny. For decades, kids like me stared longingly into posters of rock gods like Elvis, Hendrix, Harry, and Cobain, hoping their cool would trickle down and anoint them. Yet so few of us know who captured those unforgettable gestures and faces. Buckland goes far beyond Annie Leibovitz to introduce us to a set of glaringly overlooked artists, many of whom have quit the game because of restricted celebrity access.”
