Our Next Event

11/29/2014 - 10:00pm

Indies First Day is back for the second year, bringing authors and readers together at local businesses.

Celebrate Small Business Saturday at the bookstore, where local authors will be here throughout the day to help you pick out the perfect gifts for everyone on your list -- or for you.

(We're also one of the participating stores in American Express' Small Business Saturday offer.)

Here's a list of the authors who will be sharing their expertise:

  • 10-12: Kate Flora (look for her in the mystery section)
  • 10-12: Celeste Ng (sharing some of her favorite fiction)
  • 12-2: Mary Lundquist (picture books and more)
  • 2-4: Alexander Danner (for all your graphic novel needs)
  • 3-4: Joan Paquette (she's both an agent and an author, so there's nothing she doesn't know about children's books)
