Published on Tue 17 Dec 2019
Congratulations to our graduate Julie Danksin who has been included in The Bookseller's 150 for 2019 list!
The Bookseller 150 (formerly The Bookseller 100) is an annual list of the 150 most influential people in UK publishing. First published in 2009, the list is made up of publishers, retailers, authors, members of the media and more.
Julie is the manager of Edinburgh’s Golden Hare Books, which was named Independent Bookshop of the Year at this year’s Nibbies, with the judges praising its “stylish boutique-style store, sharp growth in sales and capacity for innovation”. This innovation includes the Edinburgh Book Fringe, a festival Golden Hare runs in partnership with fellow indie Lighthouse Books and which this summer hosted authors including Elif Shafak and Marina Warner. She also co-crowdfunded for the launch of new Scottish literary magazine Extra Teeth.
After completing an MA in History with us at the University of Dundee in 2010, Julie then went on to complete an MLitt (with Distinction) in Scottish History with us in 2012.
Congratulations Julie, this is a great achievement and recognition for all your hard work!
