Penguin Random House Debuts Signature

By Dianna Dilworth 

Penguin Random House has merged its Biographile and Word & Film sites to create a new site called Signature.

The site will include reportage on current events and cultural moments connected with books. The site will feature essays, interviews and opinion pieces by authors, journalists and other experts.

“Whether the headlines of tomorrow are consumed by a financial crisis, a blockbuster movie, a scientific breakthrough, or an election, there are books steeped in those subjects to further our understanding of it all,” said Kristin Fritz, director of Signature. “Signature is for readers who want deeper context for what’s going on around them. At Signature, we want to provide that context and bridge the gap between those readers and the authors and books they’ll find inspiring and useful.”
