Jennifer Dobak

Jennifer Dobak

Once a moody teenager hanging out at Barnes & Noble, Jennifer is now a less moody adult hanging out at her local indie bookstore. She studied Economics, French and Italian at the University of Notre Dame and spent the past several years as a software engineer.

Her favorite authors include Lauren Groff, Mona Awad, and V.E. Schwab.

Her lifelong goal is to publish a novel, and she has written (and continues to write) many first drafts. She hopes to one day write a second.

Lucy Zhao

Growing up, Lucy was a cheeky kid always carrying a book. She studied creative writing at the University of Michigan alongside a business degree, and still reads a book a week. For the last decade, she has been leading tech startups and launching products.

Her favorite authors include James McBride, Maggie Nelson, and Jonathan Franzen.

She loves bookstores, fall, and ice cold watermelon slices.
