Andrew Brennan began working at RJ Julia Booksellers as a teenager. After over a decade in the film and TV business, he returned to his hometown bookstore as Head Buyer. Though you'll mostly see him reading mysteries, history, or science, Andrew appreciates a well-crafted book on any topic. If he isn't thinking about books, he is probably watching a movie or in the woods with his son.
