‘Washington Post’ closes stand-alone book section
The Washington Post is the latest major news outlet to change its stand-alone book section. Book World will no longer appear in print, but book coverage will be folded into the Style & Arts and Outlook sections. The last day of Book World in print will be February 15, and then its coverage can be found online.
Previously, outlets including the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Sun-Times, NPR, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution have decreased or changed book coverage. Now, the and San Francisco Chronicle are the only two major newspapers with a stand-alone books section.
