Parade Chairman Walter Anderson is taking a six-month leave of absence to concentrate on producing a play he has written.
Anderson told the New York Post’s Keith Kelly he plans to work on his play “Johnny’s War” about a U.S. Marine who comes home from Vietnam and makes peace with his father.
S.I. Newhouse Jr., Advance Communications chairman, recommended that Anderson take a sabbatical after he approached the chairman about finishing the play.
“He really supports artists, but very quietly,” Anderson told Kelly.
Randy Siegel, president and publisher of the Sunday supplement, will step-in for Anderson until he returns in September.
