Episode 16 - Libby and Danika from Beachside Bookshop in Avalon
Jun 03, 2020 Season 1 Episode 16
Fiona Verity and Julie Nicholson

For our last episode of season 1, we talk to the wonderful ladies from @beachside_bookshop in Avalon, Libby and Danika, who provide such an invaluable service to the Avalon community. Their knowledge of books for young and old young is vast and their recommendations are always spot on. During the Covid lockdown, they kept the shop open and provided local delivery, which was a lifeline for many. We asked them why they got into bookselling, their thoughts on book covers, publishing and bookselling during Covid. Fiona and I have a chat beforehand about the importance of art books in our lives and books we recommend for you.

Thanks, Beachside Bookshop for talking to us!
