Meet the Team
When Susie's not in the bookshop, you'll find her writing about history or tinkering in her shed. Albert, one of her creations, is our reader-in-residence and spends his days swinging gently away with his nose in a book. Lucky Albert.
Jasmine is our social media lady and since finishing her apprenticeship with us in April 2016 now works every morning and runs our Children's Book Club on a Saturday. She is also a talented blogger and the only person we know who manages to look stylish in a novelty Christmas jumper.
Claire (above left, with author Katherine Swift) is a marine biologist. When she first moved to land-locked Shropshire, she put her years of training to good use by selling fish. She's now in charge of all our secondhand book buying.
Shh! Eileen worked in the hallowed halls of the old British Library Reading Room for many years before joining Cheshire Libraries as a reference specialist. She particularly loves reading aloud to groups (and cats).
Siblings Sam and Katie have both worked in the bookshop since their teens although less frequently now that Sam has a degree in prost-grad chemistry from York and Katie is studying at the University of Northampton. They still pop back when they can!
Beth has been working on and off at the bookshop since she was thirteen. She is a qualified speech therapist and now works for the Stroke Association, but still helps out at Wenlock Books whenever she can.
