Statement from Maria A. Pallante, President and CEO, Association of American Publishers on the Passing of Carolyn Reidy, AAP Board Member and President and CEO of Simon & Schuster
We join our friends and colleagues on the AAP Board, at Simon & Schuster, and across the global publishing community in mourning the loss of Carolyn Reidy. A former Chairman of AAP’s Board, she was a giant among industry giants, and her undeniable poise, grace and charm earned her the love and admiration of scores of people who had the privilege and pleasure to know her. Carolyn was a friend to me and I will miss her sorely.
