about us

A note from managing director Joe Adelaars

Caversham Booksellers was established in 1989 by Dr. Christine Dunbar (psychiatrist and psychoanalyst born in Caversham, NZ) and Peter Heyworth (1931-2007; professor of English & former Vice Principal of University College). Caversham opening meant Toronto joined New york and London in being home to bookshops specialising in psychology & mental health. My postmusic-degree experience at the U of Toronto Medical Bookstore got me on board as manager. I became a partner in 1994, and in 2007 sole proprietor, when Dr. Dunbar went on to form Caversham Productions with Elisabeth Young-Bruehl.

Whether you are in touch by phone or email, or are visiting us in-store or at conferences, you'll be served by a most experienced and helpful group. We miss Eric Evans and Vicki Fraser, who've both taken their psychotherapy practices to full-time. We've three senior staff, hired between 1999 & 2001: Janet Milligan, who has bravely and handily taken on Eric's accounting role; Karl Bustamante, buyer, and creator or our website, databases and gadgets, and "Newsletter Neil" Hendry, anchoring the front of house. Samantha, now our promotions and marketing coordinator, & Noah bring you the rest of our energy and expertise.

Our annual catalogue has become bi-annual, modeled on Vicki's efforts, by Karl, me & designer Marcus Sampaio.
