That is, I’ve joined the team at the Odyssey Bookshop as a bookseller, and have been learning about the retail side of this compelling and complicated business!
It’s fantastic to be working in a small local business again, as well as so much fun to be connecting to both our book lover customers and our Mount Holyoke College customers. (Not that those two groups are unrelated!)
I am also doing research over the summer collecting oral histories from volunteers with prison writing programs (to put it simply), which is incredible to get to do. If that describes you or someone you know, please drop a line to me at EverBethany on Twitter or some other method of contact from my Connect page above!
