In 2020, owner Julie and her husband Paul sought age appropriate ways to talk to their daughters about the BIG things happening in their world.
They diversified their bookshelves to spark discussions around acceptance, self-love, empathy, diversity (and more) and have never looked back! Follow @deskofjulie for more information on Julie's past, present and future endeavours.
