Laurie Smith will retire in February marking the end of 33 years of selling books for Transworld and Random House. Laurie’s incredible passion and dedication will be sorely missed by Random House and Booksellers in WA, while his retirement is our loss we wish him all the best for the next chapter of his life.
There will be an opportunity to send him off appropriately at the end of February in Perth.
