Alicia is our store manager and enjoys long walks on the beach with her main squeeze Archer (her adorable dog). Alicia has an eclectic taste in books, but fav genres include: cookbooks and contemporary fiction. Look for her in the store Monday to Friday.
Sarah is our store's buyer and has basically read everything. Fiction is her favourite, but she knows almost everything about every book on our shelves (seriously—she is that good). You can find Sarah in the store Monday to Friday.
Madisyn has been reading a lot of poems lately. Madisyn also loves children's books, speaking/ cooking Italian, and contemporary fiction.
Cass is the gal you'll see receiving all the books. She can't resist anything with a bright/bold/beautiful cover, especially if it's comtemporary fiction/short stories.
Erin loves poems. Your dog is her favourite dog.
Nicole enjoys many historical reads but mostly historical romance and historical fiction. She can also be found reading dystopian novels, thrillers, page to screen, young adult and tons of kids storybooks.
Katelyn is a recent expat, uprooted from the U.S. Rocky Mountians. With a penchant for written feeling, anything that can stir her heart in some kind of way is a book she will love.
Britt is one of our part-time staff. She's a grad student at UBCO who likes writing in her spare time. She enjoys a wide range of genres, particularly literary fiction, horror, and feminist literature.
Jade is attending courses at UBC's Okanagan campus for cultural studies. From current affairs to classics, fiction to theory, Jade is always looking for something different to read, so drop by the store on Fridays and Saturdays to tell her about your favourite book!
Andy fancies reading, writing, and napping.
Angie is a part-time staff member who studies math (officially) and comic books (unofficially). You'll find her in the store on Saturdays, nerding out over fantasy, sci-fi, graphic novels, and science non-fiction, although she has been known to dabble in the occasional classic or cookbook (...she has a cookbook addiction). It's her name that's plastered all over the graphic novel section, so feel free to strike up a convo in that department!
Nicole Gosh. There's not much to say. Books are better company than people. My Mr. Darcy trumps your Edward Cullen any day. Nicole is a part-timer who works weekends. Come and say, "Hi".
Bookmanager Staff Picks
Even though they don't work on the floor at Mosaic, the staff at our sister company Bookmanager are avid readers, too. Bookmanager is an indie book software program providing software and data services to the bookselling industry across Canada and the U.S. They all make their way down here often to chat books, teach the Mosaic staff how to use the new features, design/manage our website and give high fives... we at Mosaic/Bookmanager love a good high five.
Trevor likes things made of wood, music with lots of bleeps and bloops, and reading books about space and magic. He may or may not be writing a book about space wizards piloting wooden ships that frequently host some really fantastic dance parties. #PleasePublishMe
Diana likes big books and she cannot lie. She cares for non-fiction, pop culture, coffee, cats, clouds ... and has a TBR pile the size of Texas. #sendhelp
Kristi is a Laura Ingalls Wilder enthusiast whose reading preferences lean towards historical fiction and YA. She also has a slightly unsettling interest in medical non-fiction and sometimes finds herself immersed in the odd SciFi / Fantasy novel. She always eagerly grabs at anything relating to Canadian (and specifically BC) history.
Kellynda wins the longevity award, and she has been with Bookmanager/Mosaic for over 20 years (WHOAAA!!!). She knows the ins and outs of the bookselling industry like the back of her hand and is hugely knowledgeable about everything books. Her picks usually revolve around fiction and kids books – fiction for her, kids books for her kids!
Matt has a unhealthy obessession with a certain country(which can easily be found below). When he is not trying to understand certain aspects of the human condition, you can find him escaping to enjoying a fiction book with a dash of magical surrealism.
