Meet the Blue Bunny Staff
General Manager Margie Leonard has been with us since the store moved to its current location in 2007. A former elementary school teacher, Margie is passionate about picture books, Blue Bunny storytimes, and our littlest fans -- the preschool set. You can often find Margie snapping photos of kids’ most awesome artwork, eloquently recommending the works and prints of Peter H. Reynolds, and hobnobbing with the Boston children’s lit crowd.
Sue Hoffman is a jack of all trades. With her ever-present good cheer, hard-work ethic, and can-do attitude, Sue is invaluable to The Blue Bunny. Sue is well known to fellow staffers as the lucky employee who intercepts and diffuses all the unpredictable situations that arise in the afternoons. She is equally comfortable up in our loft, front window, gift wrap station, pricing merchandise or recommending books and toys. Sue also managed to bring in a rousing chorus line of lunch ladies for our Jarrett Krosoczka book launch party, much to the delight of our guests.
Janet Reynolds started in the publishing business a long time ago, and has been passionate about children’s literature for even longer. Charged with keeping two feet on the ground for twin brothers Peter and Paul Reynolds, whose vision is always hovering somewhere nearer the ceiling, Janet is happiest when helping to share the mission and spirit of the store with the community, friends, and wayward customers. Janet loves the book-loving surrogate family of supporters that come through the door each day, and loves making cupcakes for our beloved author events!
Kim Huynh! A human being who loves to read! The "human being" part is up for debate (silly, Kim!), but the love of books is real. In addition to working at BB, she's also a book blogger with Book Munchies. Kim is passionate about YA, Blue Bunny events, book conferences and keeping the team informed of breaking news in the world of publishing. She is also our social media gal, so follow BB on twitter and you'll get the latest from Kim!
Mary Hugger has been working in the book industry for over 10 years and is happy to be a part of the Blue Bunny team. She loves getting those books out of the boxes, onto the shelves. Then the fun starts: helping customers of all ages find just the right read. The Blue Bunny is excited to have Mary with us, and so grateful for the expertise she brings with her!
