You may know Gillian Redfearn as one of BodyBusiness’s fitness instructors, but she has been in the book business since the ripe old age of 15 years old when she starting working at a B. Dalton’s in Durham, North Carolina. It was the only bookstore in town aside from the Duke University Bookstore and a fabulous used bookstore. Her favorite part of working at the bookstore was receiving new inventory and helping readers find that perfect book; it was this role that she thought she might like to pursue a career in the book business, particularly if her career as a flamenco dancer didn’t work out. Gillian did not become a famous dancer, but dances and moves as much as she can, and is a National Account Manager for a major publisher in NYC.
Please join Gillian for wine, chocolate, non-alcoholic beverages and prizes (of a literary nature) on Thursday, November 29 at 6:30 p.m. to hear about some of her favorites. Some are new books and some are old books, but all are good for starting up a conversation.
