Effective in January, George Gibson, former longtime publisher of Walker & Company and publishing director at Bloomsbury USA, is joining Grove Atlantic as executive editor.
Grove Atlantic publisher and CEO Morgan Entrekin said Gibson is "admired here and around the world as a brilliant, gracious, passionate publisher and editor. His independent publishing experience at David Godine, Walker and Bloomsbury makes him a perfect fit for us. In addition, George is a longtime friend and I’m excited to welcome him as a colleague."
Gibson commented: "I have, at various times, imagined having the chance to work at Grove Atlantic, as I have such longstanding admiration for Morgan and his colleagues, for the books they publish, and for the way they publish them. To have that chance now feels like enormous luck, and I can't wait to get started."
During his career, Gibson has edited and/or published such works of nonfiction as Dava Sobel's Longitude and Galileo's Daughter, Ross King's Brunelleschi's Dome, Mark Kurlansky's Salt and Cod, Morrie Schwartz's Morrie: In His Own Words, Warren Berger's A More Beautiful Question, Bob Ryan's Scribe, Larry Sabato's The Kennedy Half-Century and Carol Anderson's White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide.
