Kathryn Bunch, Executive Director

Kathryn Bunch joined Episcopal Booksellers Association as Executive Director in September 2019.

Kathryn Bunch was born and raised on a small farm northwest of Fargo, North Dakota. After graduating from high school, she married and moved to Southern California. She honed her administrative and bookkeeping skills working many years in the family’s real estate business.

In 1994 Kathryn worked for the bookstore at St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego, California. After it closed, she opened her own traveling Episcopal bookstore in October 1994. 15 years later, she still travels to Episcopal churches in San Diego, Arizona, and Northern California.

 Kathryn has been a member store of EBA since 2002, so she joins EBA as our new Executive Director with lots of experience. As a store owner herself, her goals include growing relationships between stores and publishers; aiding brick and mortar stores in the skills needed to survive increasing online buying; and educating all Episcopal churches about EBA bookstores.

Kathryn works part-time and remotely for EBA from California. Shee may be contacted by email (director@episcopalbooksellers.org) or phone (1-800-589-8020, ext. 101). Kathryn will contact you back as soon as possible.
