What Can We Expect from the New York Times Book Review's New (Female) Editor?

New York Times Book Review features editor Pamela Paul is vaulting into the editor's seat in May after being hired in 2011 to handle reviews of children's books.  Paul is the Times’ 20th book editor and only the second female book editor. The first was Rebecca Sinkler, who served from 1989-1995.  The question:  Where will she take the NYT Book Review, which typically publishes more than twice as many male as female authors and a dearth of minorities?  Some good insights here in her exchange with Poynter's Mallary Tenore.
