HarperCollins Will Return to the Office in October

In a memo to employees this morning, HarperCollins CEO Brian Murray announced that the publisher will begin returning to its U.S. offices starting October 4. In the first phase of the program, HC’s New York and Princeton offices, along with distribution and customer service locations, will transition to a hybrid working model on October 4, with the majority of employees expected to spend 2-3 days a week in the office. Murray said this phase “in our gradual return to in-person work will act as a pilot program, which we intend to run for approximately four months.” He noted that, while management is putting plans in place for an October return, the company “will remain flexible during this pilot period, as we recognize that each employee has unique circumstances that may affect their ability to adhere to this timeline.”

When we understand why we gather, to acknowledge, to learn, to challenge, to change, we learn how to organize gatherings that are relevant and memorable: from an effective business meeting to a thought-provoking conference; from a joyful wedding to a unifying family dinner.

Sarah Ferguson probably knows a thing or two about snobs. The Duchess of York married into the royal family in 1986 and remains one of its most unconventional members – quite the feat. Her latest venture is a novel for Mills & Boon, famous for their raunch-filled romance books that often invite a snobbery of their own from literary critics. But Her Heart for a Compass is by no means a poor effort; it manages to meet most expectations for a Mills & Boon book while quietly subverting some of their worst traits. There are scant details about Lady Margaret...
