Spend even more quality time with your family on Black Friday! Enjoy even more yummy Thanksgiving leftovers! Instead of hitting the malls and online stores, join us on Small Business Saturday where some of your very favorite authors will be walking around our store for you to meet and greet.
Spearheaded by Sherman Alexie as a rallying cry for authors to show their support of independent bookstores, the Indies First initiative was implemented by the American Booksellers Association as a way to show readers the importance of shopping (and supporting) local businesses.
