Lizzy (Elizabeth) Young

Lizzy worked as a pastry chef and food editor for Gourmet Magazine for many years before taking time to raise her daughters. A chance conversation with her bookseller father Roy led her to join him to learn the trade. Working with her father at the ABAA fairs exposed her to the vast type of material ABAA members specialized in, which presented her with the perfect way to wed her professional experience and her love of food with the bookselling business by specializing in culinary related material. She opened a shop in Brooklyn in 2019. ABAA Member since 2016. Interviewed by Kara McLaughlin of Little Sages on November 17, 2018 at the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair.
