Meet the Staff at Book Culture on Columbus: Kiley McLean

I’m from Chicago by way of Worcester, Massachusetts. I moved here a few months ago for grad school and when I’m not at Book Culture, I am teaching second grade.

What is your role as a bookseller for Book Culture? 
On top of having store hours, I also work as the accounting assistant. I wouldn’t necessarily say I control all the money for the new store, but…

How did you come to be join the Book Culture family? 
I recently graduated and was looking for a job that would be flexible as I pursue my graduate degree in Special Education and Social Work at Bank Street/Columbia.

What are your areas of expertise? 
Children and middle reader books. If you want your kid to be the next Junie B. Jones or Nate the Great, I got you.

What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading Frog and ToadAmelia Bedelia, and Henry and Mudge…. so mostly classic literature.

What are you looking forward to most at Book Culture on Columbus? 
The comfy chairs.
