Janice Goldklang, the former publisher of Knopf’s Pantheon Books imprint, landed at Globe Pequot Press today after leaving Random House Inc. as part of a restructuring earlier this year. She will have responsibility for GPP’s trade imprints, including Lyons Press, Skirt! Books and Three Forms.
In announcing Goldklang’s appointment as executive director of editorial, GPP president Jim Joseph said, “Janice brings to GPP the critical skills necessary to direct a successful trade program in this new marketplace. Her editorial sensibilities and instincts are first rate.” GPP has been revamping its editorial operations this year, returning more to its core strengths of travel and outdoor recreational titles.
