Mitchell's Book Corner & Wendy Rouillard
Sometime around mid-March, my Earth Mother alter ego kicked in and has since gone into overdrive. Every few days, a malodorous smell wafts from the kitchen—that's the sourdough starter telling me it's ready for attention. I've lost count of how many pics of flowery-patterned loaves I've posted on Instagram. Gone are the bookish images and texts that filled my feed pre-COVID. If I can't eat it, grow it, or walk it, the image isn’t getting posted. I'm not saying my bibliophile persona has gone AWOL. Instead, I'm on a rereading binge; a compulsive need to be comforted by characters dear to my heart and familiar faraway lands. This episode took me to Nantucket, Massachusetts, a place I’d love to visit. I chat with Wendy Morton, owner of Mitchell’s Book Corner, and local children’s author and illustrator, Wendy Rouillard.

Bookshop Santa Cruz & Jill Wolfson
1987 proved to be a year of major change for me. It was the year I worked with the exceptional David Bowie as the stylist on the music video Day in, Day Out, directed by Julian Temple, and after a lot of coaxing, I joined Bowie and the rest of the crew on the Glass Spider Tour. I left the tour after a few months for a variety of reasons, some related to incidents that occurred on the road, the stress of which did little to maintain my recent sobriety. 1987 was also the year I met my husband, Brian Beverly. We met on the set of an Eddie Money music video—an all-nighter, well, two actually, shot in an alley Downtown LA, with, of course, a rainmaker and fog machine…lots of fog. This was, after all, a David Fincher shoot where the atmosphere is crucial.So how does my story relate to this episode of The Bookshop Podcast? How did I get from music videos to bookshops, books, and authors?
