Rowan's Recommendations

In March 2014, Rowan brought a few different cats to the bookstore from her job at the Animal Care Sanctuary, to audition for the job of new bookstore cat. Little did she realize, she was auditioning for a new job as well! We adopted Huck, Finn, and Rowan all at the same time. At first, Rowan took the important but less-than-glamorous job of basement minion -- organizing overstock, and dealing with shipping. She soon became invaluable on the floor as well, and although we still love her work in the shipping room, she is good at charming folks at the cash register, too.

Part of Rowan's charm is her eclectic taste in books: we all read a fairly wide range of subjects, but Rowan's seems especially diverse. Animal stories (fiction or nonfiction), sci-fi, children's graphic novels, crafting, beekeeping, mysteries, ballet.... her staff recommendation shelf at the store is always fascinating.
