Carrie, what's your role here at the bookshop? 

I am a bookseller!

How long have you been in that role?

Since April of 2023.

What your favorite thing about being a bookseller?

Talking about books all day everyday with the wonderful people that come through the door as well as my endlessly wonderful coworkers!

What’s your go-to genre? 

Poetry, Dystopian fiction, feminism, mystery, etc… anything except horror because I am a wimp!

What are you reading right now?

Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés

What was the last book you read?

Yellowface by R.F. Kuang  (A must read)

Best drink to sip while reading:

As a beverage connoisseur, anything will do but preferably a warm cup of tea!

Favorite book quote:

“Not touching but joined in astonishment as two cuts lie parallel in the same flesh.” -Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson

Best book recommendation you’ve received: 

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz changed my outlook on life and made me a better person (thanks Mom)!

What book do you think everyone should read: 

 Just Kids by Patti Smith

This books just instills a sense of nostalgia and fills you with grief. Patti Smith is an inspiration for me writing wise, and her writing has a sense of musicality and flow it’s so easy to get enveloped by her words. It’s just so good!

Quick! Recommend a book! 

Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson!! One of my favorite poetry books!
