People: Boudreaux Gets Imprint At Little, Brown

Ecco editorial director Lee Boudreaux will move to Little, Brown as of September 2, where she will be editorial director of an eponymous imprint, aiming to publish 8 to 10 titles a year. Publisher Reagan Arthur says in the announcement: "Lee is one of the most respected editors in the business, widely admired not just for her adventurous and discerning eye but also for her sharp editorial skills. I've long wanted to work with her, and I'm absolutely thrilled to welcome her to Little, Brown, where I know she and her new list will be an exciting part of our future."

Boudreaux says: "Like everyone else, I’ve watched Reagan Arthur publish her books and subsequently take over the reins at Little, Brown with admiration often bordering on awe. I’ve been exquisitely lucky to have worked with such extraordinary writers and colleagues at Ecco and I know what I’ve learned from them—about the art of writing and the art of publishing with unstinting passion—will always stand me in good stead. To shape my own list, focused on discovering the kind of electrifying and unexpected voices I’ve grown to treasure, is truly an honor. And, I suspect, it's also going to be a lot of fun."
