Changes at The New Yorker

John Bennet retires and Deidre Foley-Mendelssohn joins.

New Yorker editor David Remnick announced in a memo that John Bennet is retiring and Deirdre Foley-Mendelssohn has joined the magazine.

“[Bennet] has been a remarkable, innovative, and sympathetic editor at The New Yorker for a long time,” wrote Remnick. “What he has given to The New Yorker, to his writers, to all of us, is exemplary and impossible to quantify.” Bennet will leave The New Yorker at the end of the month.

Foley-Mendelssohn will join as a senior editor. She has worked at The New York Review of Books, The Paris Review and more.
