Rebecca Wall is the founder of Night Owl Books, East Linton. A lifelong bookworm, her first experience of the book trade was a Saturday job at White Rose Books, Thirsk, after which she studied French and Italian at the University of Cambridge. After completing an MA in Art History at the Courtauld Institute, she managed specialist bookshop Thomas Heneage Art Books, St. James’s, from 2012 to 2014, before becoming manager of contemporary art gallery Jonathan Cooper in Chelsea. In early 2020 she moved to East Lothian, and opened Night Owl Books in April 2022 with the aim of creating a space in which visitors could discover new books in person, and connect with others.
