Harper’s Magazine Editor Ann Barr Joins has appointed Ann Barr as Editor Emeritus and Writer for its lifestyle website. The former Harper's & Queen Deputy Editor's first article, entitled Polo's Ghost Lawns, is part of the website's celebration of the Polo Season.

Her arrival also marks the revival of "Barometer", a fortnightly round up of society, fashion, arts, politics and events. Originally created by Barr for the pages of Harpers and Queen Magazine, the updated version will be lead by her with contributions from experts and enthusiasts. It was this editorial approach of "many contributors" that lead to huge success of "The Sloane Ranger Handbook" which Barr was behind.
