Once Upon a Book Club

Michelle Wolett

Once Upon a Book Club was created by owner/designer Michelle Wolett of Chick Lit Designs. Always being an avid reader, and an entrepreneur, Michelle always found herself inspired by books. After reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, Michelle found herself in a different world while reading the book, and once it was over she immediately became inspired. What if she could create something that made you feel like you were physically a part of the book you were reading? It would feel like the reader was really there!
Michelle started brainstorming and came up with Once Upon a Book Club, which not only allowed readers to experience a newly released novel every month, but also gave readers access to a "Book Club" community where they can login online and discuss the books with other members every month! There is something so magical about turning the words of a book into an actual physical object and Michelle is so grateful to bring books to life for our readers!
Michelle is Owner and CEO of Once Upon a Book Club. When she is not working on the box, she enjoys spending time with her daughters and husband, and taking on exciting DIY projects such as her new AirBNB in Greer, AZ!

Chad Wolett

Supporting all of his wife's crazy ideas, Chad was there from the beginning when his wife came up with the idea of Once Upon a Book Club. From helping with the packing of the first box to the most recent, and stepping in to help problem solve or offer advice - Chad has always been behind the scenes helping the wheels turn. On his off time he helps out with the kids, hangs out with friends, loves TikTok and is a total history buff.
