Small Business Saturday - INDIES FIRST




We are proud members of the American Booksellers Association every day of the year.  This year, though, all the booksellers we know, through it, are doing something extra exciting. 

It seems our friends over at Queen Anne Avenue Books had an "incident" with beloved author Sherman Alexie last year, and if you click on this: Sherman Alexie's letter to booksellers you'll see how that one little author/indie bookseller incident turned into what could turn out to be an awesome annual event for all the independent shops across the land!

Below is the schedule of the authors donning their bookseller hats here for an hour or two on this day:

10 AM Kristin Halbrook

11 AM  Bonny Becker

12 N  Jerry Gold

2 PM  Kim Baker

4 PM  Sherman Alexie

5 PM  Jaime Temairik

5 PM  Peter Brown

See the book list below for the merest tip of the iceburg of these author's fine talents. And fear not, they'll be signing all their own books, so feel free to ask them for a signature while they're here. But even more exciting, perhaps, is they'll also be making custom recommendations for all your reading needs (and all the people on your reading list!)

We couldn't be more proud to host the best volunteer booksellers on the planet! 

Thank you!

Maybe I'm too late. Maybe Zoe's dad stole all her fifteen years and taught her to be scared. I'll undo it. Help her learn to be strong again, and brave. Not that I'm any kind of example, but we can learn together.

When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can't run fast enough.
