Walter Anderson, Melinda Anderson both publishing books

Walter Anderson, chairman of Parade Magazine, and my old boss, is publishing a new memoir this month called Meant to Be. Out from HarperCollins, it is the story of his hard-luck childhood and a surprising–and shocking–family discovery. Melinda, his daughter, who works at Conde Nast, is publishing her first book as well– The Catholic Girl’s Guide to Sex.
Walter was my boss while I was at Parade(running the new media group) and he was one of the most brilliant, inspiring, and unique men that I have ever met. Melinda, his daughter, started a successful editorial career right out of college and has put the time in to learn from some top editors.
I wish them both the best of luck….and Walter, I can’t wait to read your book. Melinda, I bet yours is a hoot.
