Our Thanks to Those Who've Lead the Way

A simple thank you is never enough, but it often is the best way to express our gratitude to the individuals who shouldered the responsibility of operating This House of Books and the Billings Bookstore Cooperative.

Julie Linderman co-owns and manages the online sticker company Sticker Robot. When not helping customers, modifying sticker art, and plotting the future of the sticker world, she enjoys cooking, travel, art, movies and especially reading. One of her favorite things in life is choosing her next book.

Before returning to her home state of Montana, she lived in San Francisco, and spent her 20’s surviving earthquakes, navigating the temp industry, and getting a degree at University of California Berkeley. Life in Montana has brought her close to family, and the opportunity to be involved in the community. She has volunteered for the MSU-Billings Wine and Food Festival for 15 years, serving 2 years as a co-chair of the event. Further, as a CASA Advocate, she is moved to help our most helpless.

Believing strongly in the healing powers of a good book and a good cup of tea, she relishes the opportunity to nourish a literary community in downtown Billings.

Julie was elected to the board in 2017 but stepped down after the 2018 General Meeting for personal reasons.
