Story House - New Owners      Dear Friends,


We have exciting news to share. 

After six years of launching the

Story House, Deborah Bodin Cohen is

stepping down as owner of the store. 

Josh Schnell and Marija Tešić-Schnell

are the new owners of the bookstore. 

Josh and Marija are long-time supporters of

independent bookstores and the Story House and have been raising their two boys in Rockville for the past 15 years. 

As being new to owning a bookstore, they are very excited to connect with the community.  They will continue to sell at Dawson’s Market and look forward to hosting book and author events later this year as they settle into their new role. 


Debbie has recently begun a full-time position as an editor at Behrman House-Apples & Honey Press.  She looks forward to seeing the Story House thrive under its new ownership.

Josh, Marija and Debbie
