Kathryn Schulz has been named book critic at New York magazine, the New York Observer announced today. Schulz was an IRP Fellow in the spring of 2004, traveling to Japan to report on antidepressants. Schulz is also author of the nonfiction book Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error.

More from editor-in-chief Adam Moss, as quoted by the Observer: “Kathryn has a wide-ranging intellect and a vivid voice, and I’m thrilled that she’s bringing her formidable talents to New York,” Mr. Moss wrote in the announcement. “Our readers, who had a taste of Kathryn’s work last year, can look forward to thoughtful works beyond the traditional book review, on literary subjects and big ideas that books put in motion. She’s the kind of writer you want to read on anything, because her mind is so interesting.”
