Sad News

I just learned that Jeanne Leiby, editor of The Southern Review, passed away yesterday.

Some of you may have met Leiby at the 2008 Spring Conference, when she participated in the publishers’ panel.  She had just become editor of The Southern Review; I had just become director of the Network.  Her energy and ideas made me feel sluggish and thick by comparison.

This is a great loss, and she will be missed.
