Gail Brussel has joined Penguin Press as publicity manager. Most recently ran her own PR company, Gail Brussel Book Publicity. In addition, Juliana Kiyan has been promoted to assistant publicity director.
As we reported last month, Kate Childs left her position as director of Special events and event partnerships at Random House to join CAA. The agency has now officially explained that Childs takes the “newly-created position within the books department to create unique live events for client book releases. She will “work in collaboration with publishing houses to develop strategic programming in support of a book launch that expands upon a client’s existing fan base and amplifies their reach to readers across multiple channels.”
