Lauren's Picks

Our resident book imp has had many titles: bookseller, science fiction snob, receiver, book club leader, sidelines buyer, and even costumed character! 

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 comics/manga... though she has been known to nibble on creative non-fiction & true crime from time to time as well. You can find this plucky purple pixie bouncing around the store, flipping upside down in circuses, fermenting delicious & eldritch things in her basement, or nestling in the corner of warm little restaurants with a book.
