Around Town | Brianne van Reenen

Our guest is Brianne van Reenen - Founder and Curator of "Wild Lark Books".

Brianne discusses how a lifelong love of books led her to leave the stability of her job as a marketing director to pursue her dream to open Lubbock’s first independent bookstore and publishing house, Wild Lark Books.

She describes her motivations for focusing on creating a community of book lovers and writers in West Texas. Brianne shares the deeply sentimental origins of the bookstore’s interior design and its complimentary tea cart!
