These are our staff
Patricia is Cree and a member of the As'in'i'wa'chi Ni'yaw Nation. After 17 years of working at various bookstores and non-profits, she was inspired to open her own used bookstore that would also serve as an event space for the community. She believes books connect us to our humanity and couldn't imagine doing anything else! Ask her about Indigenous Studies, Psychology, Health, or the Rare Book Room.
Michael is a veteran bookseller, having worked at almost every bookstore in Vancouver, including Spartacus Books, the People's Co-Op Bookstore, MacLeod's, Pulp Fiction, and even the Paper Hound for a vacation stint. Michael knows a little bit about everything (including his favourite franchise, Godzilla), but be sure to ask him about Poetry, Philosophy, and Classics.
Estlin McPhee is a writer and book enthusiast who has worked for a long time with food, kids, and the written word (occasionally all at once). For five years, they co-organized REVERB: A Queer Reading Series and once upon a time they ran a pop-up pancake cafe. Ask Estlin about Poetry, Gender Studies, Young Adult and Children’s books.
