Small Business Saturday and Indies First!

Indies First is a year-round campaign in support of independent bookstores by authors and publishers. Sherman Alexie came up with the idea for writers to support their local indie by volunteering to work at the store on Small Business Saturday in 2013.  We’ll have two celebrated local authors on hand to sign copies of their books and talk about THEIR favorite reads this season. Clete Barrett Smith, author of the middle grade series, Aliens on Vacation and a new young adult novel, Mr. 60% will be here from 12-2pm.
