With Small Business Saturday still a week away, authors throughout the country have committed to pitching in and showing what bookstores mean to them.
The Indies First initiative has enrolled almost 900 authors who will be working as volunteers at more than 400 bookstores nationwide. Started by author Sherman Alexie and coordinated by the ABA, you can check this posted map and list of participating stores to see who might be a guest bookseller in your community.
It’s no secret that we vote with our dollars for the kind of community we want. If you love your Indie bookstore, turn out on 11/30/13, look for something cool to read, and say hi to your neighbors. One of them might be a famous author you didn’t even know lives in your town–and loves your bookstore, too.
