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.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

While Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island have made this first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation a statutory holiday, Ontario has not, and we feel we are more useful open until our province makes it official. We are in a position to feature resources written by and about those with lived experiences of indigenous people in Canada and elsewhere, and Caversham is marking this day by donating our gross margin on the year's sales of indigenous books to local and national charities.

For now, at least, we'll take the day ON to learn and listen and reflect from the community.
