Pictures of the Week | Celebrating Chris Jackson, Editor & Publisher

Latinx in Publishing and POC & Natives in Publishing celebrated the legendary editor Chis Jackson on January 5 in New York City at the Solas Bar. Jackson is the Vice President, publisher and editor-in-chief of One World, a just relaunched imprint of Random House. Previously, he was an executive editor at Spiegel & Grau from its founding in 2006, where he edited prize-winning and best-selling authors including Trevor Noah, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Bryan Stevenson, Eddie Huang, Jill Leovy, Matt Taibbi, Victor LaValle, Mat Johnson, and Jay Z. The event was moderated by Latinx in Publishing steering committee member Antonio Gonzalez. A good time was had by all.
