Interview with Sun-Times Books Editor

Critical Mass, the blog of the National Books Critics Circle board of directors, posted an interview with Cheryl L. Reed, the books editor at the Chicago Sun-Times. Reed is quoted saying, "My main thrust has been in highlighting local authors and mainstream authors who come to town. We do a lot more interviews with authors now and I encourage our reviewers to take an attitude. I want our section to be entertaining and engaging even if readers don't go out and buy all the books we review."
