The IN-STORE Bibliotherapy Session.
Teaming up with award-winning book blogger, Lucy Pearson from The Literary Edit, we’ve decided to launch a Bibliotherapist service. Created to cure readers of their literary ailments during both quarantine and self-isolation, the service is designed for anyone looking to escape into the pages of a book.
Through a discussion about books, Lucy, our in-house Bibliotherapist, will find the perfect book for each person; whether it be a classic tome, contemporary novel or inspiring memoir, and she will go on to offer a bespoke prescription for each person to inspire, entertain and even help those feeling anxious at this time.
We wanted to launch a package that would serve the local community and beyond, and couldn’t think of anyone better to partner with than host of our Bondi Literary Salon, Lucy from The Literary Edit. An avid and voracious reader her depth of knowledge when it comes to books is unrivalled, and we believe she’s the best person around to incite a love of literature in the people of Sydney.
Our Bibliotherapist service is a personal book recommendation consultation. For $150.00, customers will be have the opportunity to experience Gertrude & Alice after hours with their book Doctor, Lucy, to discover more about their bookish tastes. You will be able to chat over a glass of wine and nibbles, as you roam inside the beating heart of a Bondi bookstore. It’s a bit like a night at the museum. Lucy will then hand-pick three books which you can take home to enjoy alongside one of Gertrude & Alice’s famous sweet treats.
