Meet the Staff: Leigh Buckley

What are you currently reading or what is your favorite book?

I just completed Natasha Solomons' Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English. I loved it! It is a delightful story of a Jewish German couple who move to London after WWII. They both have extremely different wishes for their new lives. Their divisiveness is comical, endearing, and it is beautifully written. I am so looking forward to her new release in October and her visit to the bookstore in November!


What is your favorite part about working at Page & Palette?

The best thing about working here by far is meeting the most diverse, colorful, and wonderful people who come through these doors. They may be locals that visit daily, locals that pop in occasionally, or even those "not from around here," but almost always each has a sparkle about them that adds to the magic of our store.


What do you like to do in your free time?

Away from the bookstore, I enjoy biking, yoga, kayaking, and of course, reading! Spending time with my Mississippi family, friends, and pets keep me on the road, which is also great because I am able to catch up on more reading by audiobooks!
