THIS ISSUE of the Los Angeles Times Book Review is the final one in its current form. Starting Aug. 3, Sunday book coverage will move to a reconfigured Calendar Part II, which will be renamed Arts & Books and will feature dedicated space for books.
In addition to Arts & Books, we will also continue to publish book reviews six days a week in daily Calendar. We will also publish book-related features, both in the daily paper and on Sunday. And, of course, we will maintain the online book coverage at
latimes.com/books, including our Web columns and our book blog, Jacket Copy, latimesblogs.latimes.com/jacketcopy.
Literature is essential to the well-being of our culture; it is the substance of our collective dreams. That has long been part of this newspaper's legacy, and even in the midst of changes, we will continue to honor it -- as we have since the days of Robert Kirsch and Art Seidenbaum.
David L. Ulin
