Sarah Jessica Parker loves books. Her Instagram is punctuated by pictures of book covers. She’s spoken lovingly about libraries and serves as The American Library Association’s Honorary Chair of Book Club Central, recently choosing No One is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Powell Watts as the inaugural title. And the star and executive producer of HBO’s Divorce is taking on a new role: editorial director of her own imprint, SJP for Hogarth. In partnership with Molly Stern, Publisher of Crown and Hogarth, Parker will acquire and curate works of literary fiction that reflect her own taste as a reader—and we don’t have to wait too long to read her imprint’s first novel. Parker recently acquired her first manuscript, a debut novel by Fatima Farheen Mirza.
