A Good Book Drive: Julia Dewhurst

Julia Dewhurst, co-owner of Brick & Mortar Living, is cause for celebration. Not only is she the most recent A Good Book Drive community supporter, but the location of her shop full of trinkets in New Westminster means she’s bringing a love of reading to new frontiers.


Julia donated the Just a Little Critter Collection by Mayer Mercer, a storybook series that still has her “freaking out inside” every time she sees a copy of the book somewhere. Hopefully, these stories will illicit the same reaction from its recipient. Listen to Julia share her Little Critter and early reading memories below.

A Good Book Drive is an annual book drive to bring stories to a new generation of readers, and support kids in need of new books. Running through the month of November, A Good Book Drive will be inspiring Vancouverites to purchase a new copy of their favorite kids’ book and deliver it to set locations throughout the city. At these drop off locations you can personalize your donation with a special bookplate, sharing the story of why that book is special to you. All books will be donated to this year’s book drive recipient, Frontier College Waiting Room Literacy Pilot Project. Share your favourite stories with A Good Book Drive on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
