In this episode, I chat with Charlotte Guest, manager of The Book Bird, about ethnic diversity in West Geelong, bookselling, local authors, and books!
The Book Bird is a small, independent bookshop that prides itself on matching readers with books they love. The staff believes bookshops are repositories of wisdom and spaces of learning. Located on Pakington Street in Geelong West, Victoria, Australia, The Book Bird has become a much-loved community hub since its opening in 2015. This idea underpins everything the staff does across customer service, events, their book club, and other initiatives,
Their eclectic range of books spans children’s, young adult, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, gardening, travel, art, architecture, and cooking. They stock the books reviewed in the national papers and books you’ve never heard of, but when placed in your hands, they just may change your life.
The Book Bird thinks of their staff as your literary tour guides. They are knowledgeable and passionate about what they do and will take the time to connect the right books with the right humans. Whether it's in-store recommendations, their review cards, carefully considered displays, or social media posts, all communication at The Book Bird is about sharing the power of books and reading.
