The magazine industry will honour two veteran women publishers, Ann Moore and Martha Stewart, with Lifetime Achievement Awards. Moore, chairman and CEO of Time Inc., will receive the Magazine Publishers of America’s Henry Johnson Fisher Award; while Stewart will be inducted into the American Society of Magazine Editors’ Hall of Fame, both organizations announced. The prestigious awards will be presented Jan. 29 at a luncheon at the Plaza in New York City.

Also, check out the November 24 issue of Fortune magazine for an interview with Martha. In it, she says she still keeps in touch with many of the women she met while in prison: "Some of the women who became my friends while I was incarcerated have visited with me. There are some very interesting women there of great value to society, and I keep in contact with them. We have some broken systems in this country -- one is the prison system."
