In the next few weeks, after months of planning and anticipation, we are finally opening our new store on 81st and Columbus Ave.  The shelves are up, the walls are painted, and the books—so many books—are on their way. Aside from being excited about the store’s amazing two story space  (here are some photos:, we are also looking forward to meeting a whole new community of book lovers.  Throughout the month of November, the blog will feature Q&As with the new store’s staff, including bios, book recommendations, and what it’s like to be a part of the Book Culture family.

Today we are introducing…

Be sure to ask her about the Footloose shot-by-shot remake she is working on.
