Lauren's Picks

Raised by wolves in Durham, Lauren made the move to Asheville for an undergraduate degree, and now we're still stuck with her. Like a good sandwich, Lauren finds particularly delectable books hard to put down. The bulk of her literary diet is comprised of science fiction, fantasy, and graphic novels - Caitlin R. Kiernan, Ray Bradbury, China Mieville, and Karen Russell being staples. You can find this plucky purple pixie bouncing around the store, flipping upside down in circuses on a trapeze, or curling up in the corner of wine bars with a book.
