Hachette pulls the plug on Weinstein Books

Hachette Book Group terminated its Weinstein Books imprint on Thursday, it said via an internal e-mail obtained by Buzzfeed Books and PublishersLunch. Hachette is the latest entity to distance itself from Harvey Weinstein after a flood of allegations of sexual harassment and assault. The Weinstein Co. dismissed Weinstein on Sunday.

Investigations published this week by the New York Times and the New Yorker detail Weinstein’s alleged misconduct over decades.

Weinstein Books was launched as Miramax Books in 2001, and published titles by public figures such as Rudy Giuliani and Madeleine Albright. Its partnership with Perseus Books, part of Hachette Book Group, began in 2009.
