Ronan Farrow Leaves Publisher Over Woody Allen Memoir Plans

Ronan Farrow says he will no longer work with his publisher after the group announced plans to publish his father's memoir, reports The Guardian.

Farrow, the bestselling author of "Catch and Kill" who helped break the Harvey Weinstein scandal, on Tuesday said he would cut ties with the Hachette Book Group after he found out through media reports that the publisher acquired Woody Allen's memoir "after other major publishers refused to do so."

Ronan Farrow's sister, Dylan Farrow, has repeatedly claimed Allen sexually abused her as a child. Allen has strongly denied the allegations.

"Your policy of editorial independence among your imprints does not relieve you of your moral and professional obligations as the publisher of 'Catch and Kill,' and as the leader of a company being asked to assist in efforts by abusive men to whitewash their crimes," Farrow wrote in an email to Michael Pietsch, the chief executive of Hachette.

Dylan Farrow issued her own statement, saying: "Hachette's publishing of Woody Allen's memoir is deeply upsetting to me personally and an utter betrayal of my brother whose brave reporting, capitalized on by Hachette, gave voice to numerous survivors of sexual assault by powerful men."
