MY BOOKSHOP BY CORRIE PERKIN
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.
