Kathryn Corbett

Meet Kathryn Corbett who with her husband Dan took over Lighthouse Books in Brighton in 2016. The store had been a fixture in town for almost 20 years. Kathryn grew up near Toronto but then lived and taught in Thunder Bay. Much of Kathryn’s teaching career there and then here in Northumberland was as an elementary Teacher Librarian. Kathryn has been a book lover since childhood, which led her to major in English Literature at the University of Toronto.  While at university Kathryn worked part time at 3 different WH Smith bookstores in the GTA. As a mom and now a grandmother, Kathryn enjoys seeing first hand which children’s books have the most appeal but good murder mysteries, historical fiction and enlightening nonfiction are also favourite topics of conversation amongst her reading family. Besides reading, Kathryn has enjoyed traveling and makes visits to libraries and bookstores wherever she goes.
