MY BOOK­SHOP BY CORRIE PERKIN

GRAM - - Now Open -

OPENED: June 30, 2015

My Book­shop Toorak is the sec­ond ven­ture for jour­nal­ist Corrie Perkin whose print ca­reer spans 30 years and in­cludes a stint as Mel­bourne edi­tor of Good Week­end mag­a­zine, Mel­bourne edi­tor of Harper’s Bazaar, and arts and books edi­tor of The Sun­day Age. Corrie has teamed up with daugh­ter Francesca for this project and both hope the shop will be­come a place where booklovers meet, work, dis­cuss, de­bate, be en­ter­tained, and share the many great ideas that are so of­ten rep­re­sented in books.

Tea, cof­fee and small bites are avail­able at the in-house ground-floor café where pa­trons can or­der food and bev­er­age, then head up­stairs to the com­mu­nal space for some quite time with a book or mag­a­zine, or a work­ing ses­sion with their lap­tops.

The north-fac­ing up­stairs mez­za­nine is an ideal day­time work-hub for stu­dents or busi­ness peo­ple, where they can tap into the free WiFi and en­joy the sur­round­ing con­tem­po­rary art ex­hi­bi­tions.
