Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with Jenna Todd, manager and bookseller at Time Out Bookstore.

Jenna Todd (Kāi Tahu) is the manager of Time Out Bookstore in Auckland, which won New Zealand’s best bookshop for 2016 and 2017 and was named in the top three bookstores in the world in 2017. She is the chair of Booksellers NZ and is their representative on the Trust. Jenna was the first recipient of the Kobo Booksellers NZ Scholarship in 2014 and was named Young Bookseller of the Year in 2015. She was a fiction judge for the 2018 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards and reviews books monthly on RNZ’s Nine to Noon, fortnightly on 95bFM’s breakfast show, and was a host on The Spinoff’s Papercuts podcast. 

Established in 1988, in the heart of Auckland’s historic Mt Eden Village, Time Out Bookstore is renowned for its excellent curation and eclectic books, occasionally weird window displays, haven-like children’s book room, and in-store cat.
