About Lacy: born bookseller, but always a little surprised that she gets to own a bookstore. A good pen can turn a whole day around. Out-of-practice writer, medium-fast reader. David Mitchell enthusiast, unapologetic feminist, and mother to a seven year-old storyteller named Ramona.
About Jacob: If books were jail, Jacob would be a lifer - they've been <doing time> selling books for over 15 years. They're most likely to be swallowed up by the poetry section, the social justice and history sections, and anywhere they can scrounge up literary fiction or experimental prose. Their doppleganger is a poet and occasional performer in the Midcoast, but don't be confused. Many think that the only thing keeping them alive is an infinite series of cups of tea.
Claire started with us as an intern in 2018, and now she is officially on staff!

Past staff: Cameron's Picks
About Cameron: "I'm a professional rubber ball happy to have bounced into hello hello's book corner. Reading classical and contemporary fiction, poetry, pop culture, memoir, humor, and science writing or anything that catches me at the right time. Lover of pizza Fridays and a good spot of sunshine. Creature-collector, found curled around her dog with a book most nights."
