Amelia Lester ’05 has been named managing editor of the New Yorker, the New York Observer reported yesterday.
As a Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellow at Harvard Magazine, Lester, a native of Sydney, Australia, wrote her first column for the magazine about adjusting to life in America. Subsequent columns explored the senior-year job search and the bittersweet transition into life after college.
Lester most recently worked as an editor at the Paris Review, according to the Observer; she had previously worked as a fact checker at the New Yorker. (See this biography from when she was named a Ledecky Fellow.)
