NEW YORK (AP) - A publisher who worked with Bob Dylan, Bob Woodward and others at Simon & Schuster is joining Penguin Group (USA) and will have his own imprint.

Penguin announced Monday that David Rosenthal will start in January and begin releasing books in the fall, with a goal of 24 to 36 a year.

Rosenthal expects to acquire fiction and nonfiction, literary and commercial works. He spent 13 years at Simon & Schuster before being replaced last summer.
