Sarah Jessica Parker Is Now A Book Publisher

Just last week, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed she had designed a limited edition collection of LBDs for Bloomingdale's, and now, the TV star has announced she has taken on another project, but this time it's focused on books. The Sex and the City actress will act as the editorial director for SJP at Hogarth Publishing from next year. 

As part of the role, SJP "will help find, edit, and publish three to four new novels a year." It's a pretty huge coup for the star, and something she says she's entirely passionate about. "I have always loved to read for the same reason I love to act, which is that other people's stories are more interesting to me than my own. As a lifelong book lover, as someone who treasures and admires the skill and talent of original and powerful storytellers it is my great privilege to be invited into the world and business of books."

Sarah will be channeling her famous alter ego character, Carrie Bradshaw, in the new role, who famously loved the smell of old books. In a statement about her new role, the former Bazaar cover star said, "People have tried to bottle the smell of old books, but it's the most elusive thing, like trying to recreate a great story. You can't, which is what makes it special."
