Laurian

I’ve been with Berkelouw and Harry Hartog since 2012 and have worked in the book industry for over 15 years - starting out as a bookseller, then in library sales, events management, store management, replenishment ordering and remainder buying. My current role at Harry Hartog as Operations Manager is to support the stores and our wider team to do what they do best. As a lifelong book lover, the floor of the bookshop is my happy place. Whether it is helping customers, discover new authors or catching up with the team and what they are reading, it is the connections we make as booksellers that give meaning to what we do everyday. It’s hard to pick a favourite book, however some of my favourite authors are Helen Garner, Ann Patchett, Elizabeth Strout, Hanya Yanagihara and David Mitchell. When I’m not bookselling, I love to travel and see live music.
