Golden Hare Books and Lighthouse Books
We visit two independent bookshops in Edinburgh

Earlier this month our intrepid explorers Steph McKenna and Roisin Batty ventured up to Edinburgh for the festival. While there they had the opportunity to visit two independent bookshops and speak to the people who work there: Julia Danskin of The Golden Hare and Mairi Oliver from Lighthouse Books.

Apologies for some of the audio quality in the first interview: due to being on location we didn’t have access to our usual equipment!

Hosted by Simon Jones and Steph McKenna.
