About Lacy: born bookseller, but always a little surprised that she gets to own a bookstore. A good pen can turn a whole day around. Out-of-practice writer, medium-fast reader. David Mitchell enthusiast, unapologetic feminist, and mother to a four and a half year-old storyteller named Ramona.
About Jacob: If books were jail, Jacob would be a lifer - they've been <doing time> selling books for 16 years. They're most likely to be swallowed up by the poetry section, the social justice and history sections, and anywhere they can scrounge up literary fiction or experimental prose. Their doppleganger is a poet and occasional performer in the Midcoast, but don't be confused. Many think that the only thing keeping them alive is an infinite series of cups of tea.
About Hillary: word nerd, language lover and book enthusiast who adores wide margins. When not at the shop, she's frolicking around the Fox Islands engaging in press banditry and other shenanigans.

Lacy's daughter Ramona is four and a half, and--not surprisingly--bonkers about books. Here are some of her early and current favorites!
Our 2018-2019 youth intern Claire recommends these!
Past staff: Cameron's Picks
About Cameron: "I'm a professional rubber ball happy to have bounced into hello hello's book corner. Reading classical and contemporary fiction, poetry, pop culture, memoir, humor, and science writing or anything that catches me at the right time. Lover of pizza Fridays and a good spot of sunshine. Creature-collector, found curled around her dog with a book most nights."

Past staff: Aurora's picks
About Aurora: Book lover extraordinaire! Fantasy books, science books, literary novels, you name it and I'll try it. I also like my cat and dog. They're pretty great.
Past staff: Annie's picks
About Annie: she's originally an island native of Martha's Vineyard who found her way to Maine almost 2 years ago and into the lovin' arms of hello hello books. (In April of 2018, she moved back to her MV homeland, and we miss her every dang day.) She's a harpist, an actor, and has been in a committed relationship with David Bowie for over 15 years. Beep-Boop-Beep.
