Newsflash: Kirkus hopes to continue!

Just pulled this from Emma Dryden's Facebook about a PW article. Woot!

"In an email to colleagues today, Kirkus Reviews managing editor and nonfiction editor Eric Liebetrau said the publication, which last month was said to be closing with staff leaving by the end of 2009, is working toward an arrangement with an acquiring company to continue publication."

Most excellent!
