In this episode, I chat with Claire Harris, manager of Lutyens and Rubinstein Bookshop, about how the demographics of Notting Hill affect the curation of the bookshop, their bespoke services, independent stores in the area, and books!

Lutyens and Rubinstein Bookshop was founded in 2009 by literary agents Sarah Lutyens and Felicity Rubinstein. 

The emphasis for the curation of the bookshop is on excellence in writing and narrative across a broad range of genres. The core stock was assembled by canvassing hundreds of readers – writers, publishing contacts, and friends (both adults and children) about which books they would most like to find in a bookshop.  Every book stocked has its place because somebody loves and recommends it.

Shop Manager Claire Harris and Partnerships Manager Tara Spinks joined the bookshop team before opening and are supported by Children’s Buyer Caroline Eade and Booksellers Christy Matthews and Ella Wright.
