Emily Philip is a former indie bookseller and book reviewer who now works at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. From her earliest years, Emily has loved stories – in books, on screen, performed, spoken, overheard. Emily’s own story is rather small and set entirely in Brisbane, but if books have taught her anything (and of course they have), she knows that even the smallest person can change the course of the future.
