Meet our new store manager, Aaron Jackson

We have an exciting announcement: we have hired a new addition to our Bookworks family. 

Please help us welcome Aaron Jackson—our new Store Manager!

A lifelong reader and writer, Aaron started his career as a bookseller with Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles, CA. After becoming a department and community relations manager there, Aaron moved back to New York City, his birthplace, and worked at the Strand Bookstore for ten years as the Director of Visual Merchandising. At the Strand, Aaron participated in product creation, customer service training, event planning, and pop-up installations. 

Raised by parents who were both authors, Aaron began writing at a young age in a house filled with books. Aaron, a fellow dog person, is the author of the poetry collection, Dogetry, and has been published in more than fifty publications. Aaron is the former Poet Laureate of Jersey City, NJ, and is a two time recipient of grants from the Puffin Foundation. He has traveled the country giving poetry readings and his fine art has been exhibited at galleries in the US and Europe. 

We are so lucky that Aaron and his family recently relocated to Albuquerque. He is thrilled to join the Bookworks team and looks forward to meeting customers when the store reopens. Come by and say hello to Aaron!
