The staff at Loganberry Books includes genre specialists, event coordinators, comptrollers, cataloguers, and handselling book lovers -- although our titles don't always reflect all that.  Here is who we are.

Brenda

Brenda

Brenda
Book Buyer
Loves to buy books, the older the better, but hates selling them. Positions chairs, rugs and displays in their proper locations. In short, Brenda is the proprietor’s mother.

 

Elisabeth

 

Elisabeth
Bookseller and Annex Gallery Manager

Elisabeth began working at Loganberry while home from Vassar College on summer break in 2007. It was this introduction to book business that sent her off on an almost 10-year career in book publishing after graduating and moving to New York City. She moved back to Cleveland with her wife in 2017 and is thrilled to return to her bookselling roots. Elisabeth's reading and collecting passions include vintage travel and nature writing and women's biography. When not reading (or telling you what you should read next), Elisabeth can be found in her garden or planning her next trip.

 

Harriett

Harriett

Harriett
Proprietor

Harriett started Loganberry Books in 1994, acknowledging that what she liked best about perpetual school was the physical objects called books. Her personal biblio interests range from Robert Lawson to Virginia Woolf and various and sundry illustrated editions of Alice in Wonderland and old lepidoptera.

 

 Julie

                 Julie

                Bookseller                  

Julie came to Cleveland to attend Case Western Reserve University, and stayed after graduating  because of the wonderful people she’s met here.  A voracious reader, primarily of non-fiction but also some fiction, Julie thought she had found heaven when she discovered Loganberry a few years ago.  Aside from reading, she enjoys writing, painting, music, cuddling her dog, and nature.  Julie selects books for the Book of the Month Club, as well as maintaining the Stump the Bookseller page and running the Broadsides and Ephemera Open Mic.

Otis

Otis

Otis
Greeter

Otis joined us in the spring of 2008. Harriett was leaving for work when all of a sudden a very loud grey-and-white kitten appeared and demanded a job in book sales. He was very persuasive and Harriett decided to offer him a position. And that is how Loganberry Books became “the bookstore with the cat.”

Rebecca

Rebecca

Rebecca
Out-of-Print Specialist

Rebecca has spent a checkered career reading as much as possible, to the detriment of any other activity.  She spent many years as an announcer and interviewer for classical music radio, and has been known to commit theatre on various occasions.  She is married with 2 teenagers.

Sarah

Sarah

Sarah
Publisher Liaison

As our resident local author, Sarah is in charge of the LitArts room, which includes all of our literature and genre fiction.  She shelves the copious incoming inventory, and helps customers find the perfect read (even if she does tend towards dark and depressing tales herself).
