A spokesperson for the Wall Street Journal has confirmed with PW that this morning’s Observer piece describing a new book review section that the paper will soon launch is spot on. The new book review, which will be a pull-out as The Observer noted, will be part of an expanded version of the paper’s Saturday section, which is to launch later this month.
The Journal isn’t saying much more about the new section other than what’s in The Observer. How many pages the section will be has not been specified, and the reference to it being “significant” was not shot down by the Journal‘s spokesperson. We’ll come to back you with more on this as soon as additional details are released.
