Julie grew up around the corner from her town library and spent quite a bit of her time popping over to it. She spent so much of her childhood and adolescence with her nose in a book that it surprised no one when she became an English teacher. For the last couple of decades, she and her family have visited Falmouth almost every summer -- en route to a vacation rental on the Cape or Martha's Vineyard or for the Falmouth Road Race -- and each visit included a trip to Eight Cousins Bookshop. Now a new resident in Falmouth, she is delighted to begin her next chapter as a bookseller here at Eight Cousins. When she is not reading, she enjoys doing needlework and occasionally venturing out onto the Shining Sea Bike Path.
