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, who after 22 years as assistant manager has taken his psychotherapy practice 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; Vicki Fraser, who artfully co-ordinates our conference schedule and promotional efforts, while in training to be a psychotherapist; and Karl Bustamante, who diligently creates and monitors our website, databases and gadgets, while studying cognitive science and philosophy. Front-of-house are Marijke, Neil & Eli.
Our annual catalogue is produced over ten weeks by Vicki, me & designer Marcus Sampaio which is available on our home page. Hard copies are available also on request.

Rainbows are popping up all over our lovely (if congested) city, and our window is no exception. In honour of the diverse people who make up our communities, we've put together an LGBTQ/sex positive display to showcase some literature and promote understanding.
There's something for everyone in here! We have books for children, families, LGBTQ youth and adults. There is also a variety of sex-positive literature available for the layman, and for professionals.
