Nextbook taps Forward arts editor


Alana Newhouse was named the editor of the Jewish literary magazine Nextbook.

Newhouse, the outgoing arts and culture editor at the Forward, will replace Joanna Smith Rakoff, who resigned last week.


“I’m expecting that she will bring her enthusiasm, insights and experience to help build upon the solid foundation provided by Joanna and bring our Web magazine to an even greater level of accomplishment,” Morton Landowne, Nextbook’s director, said of Newhouse.
