UPDATE: <a href="http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/publishing/publishers_weekly_cover_photo_sparks_twitter_controversy_145997.asp">Galleycat</a> provides background on the choice of the photo by Calvin Reid of PW. Reid, who is black, wrote on Twitter that since the magazine picks recommended books in the issue, going to picks -- as in picks for Afros -- seemed like a funny leap.
