Knows her books, her authors, and her customers; amazing things happen when they all come together at one of the multitude of events the store hosts throughout the year. Pick a genre and you'll get a solid recommendation. In the publishing world she has been called a book promotion machine. 



Why limit yourself to a single genre? 


Sue strives to put the right book in the right hand. She adores junior fiction and YA books, and she always has a review to share. 



 Cathy loves to read historical fiction and children's books -- especially picture books with her grandchildren.


Blue Heron Books aficionados know that Marilyn owned the store before Shelley took the helm. Still behind the counter, Marilyn knows her books and will always put the perfect read in your hand.



 I like to read anything with authentic characters. I'm trying more non-fiction. I love "place novels" that take me somewhere else!


When she's not behind the bar at the Second Wedge, you can find Maggie enjoying a quiet morning in the store or behind the bookselling table at one of our many author events. A lover of all things non-fiction, Maggie has recently enjoyed some page turning novels with her book club @thesestoriesmatter



 Emma is one of our many fantastic student employees! This avid reader and speedy book shelver also has the best YA and Junior fic. recommendations! Stop by and you’ll be sure to leave with a great book in your hands.



If you're looking for Sci-fi, mystery or historical fiction, Liam has the picks for you! 



Sam reads a little bit of everything! She has the perfect picks if you're looking to escape reality.
