Harriett started Loganberry Books in 1994, acknowledging that what she liked best about perpetual school was the physical objects called books. Her personal biblio interests range from Robert Lawson to Virginia Woolf and various and sundry illustrated editions of Alice in Wonderland and old lepidoptera.
Lorraine is a continual source of embarrassment to her two teenage sons, but thanks to them she is well-versed in Captain Underpants (Pilkey) and Harry Potter, and the merits of Nintendo video games. She is weak in the areas of Barbie, American Girl and Twilight. Lorraine also manages Stump the Bookseller.
Rebecca has spent a checkered career reading as much as possible, to the detriment of any other activity. She spent many years as an announcer and interviewer for classical music radio, and has been known to commit theatre on various occasions. She is married with 2 teenagers.
As our resident local author, Sarah is in charge of the LitArts room, which includes all of our literature and genre fiction. She shelves the copious incoming inventory, and helps customers find the perfect read (even if she does tend towards dark and depressing tales herself). She also manages our monthly Book Club, sending books out to happy readers in Cleveland, Boston, and even Australia.

Otis joined us in the spring of 2008. Harriett was leaving for work when all of a sudden a very loud grey-and-white kitten appeared and demanded a job in book sales. He was very persuasive and Harriett decided to offer him a position. And that is how Loganberry Books became “the bookstore with the cat.”
