Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with these two local authors on Zoom!


Have you ever wished you could run away and leave your life behind? Born on the “Day of the Wanderer,” Lisa Dailey has always been filled with wanderlust.Although she and her husband had planned to take their family on a ’round-the-world adventure, she didn’t expect their plans to come together on the heels of grief, after losing seven family members in five years. Square Up shows us that travel not only helps us understand and appreciate other cultures, but invites us to find compassion and wisdom, heal from our losses, and discover our capacity for forgiveness, as well as joy.

Lisa Dailey is an avid traveler and writer. In her time abroad, she unearthed new ways of looking at her life through her discoveries in remote corners of the world and she continues to enrich her life through travel. She is currently working on a recipe anthology as well as her first work of fiction. A native Montanan, Lisa now makes her home by the ocean in Bellingham, Washington, but returns to her roots every summer for a healthy dose of mountains and Big Sky. Lisa is the owner of Silent Sidekick and Sidekick Press where she helps guide authors through their publishing journey.

Cami Ostman, founder of The Narrative Project, has published a memoir, Second Wind: One Woman’s Midlife Quest to Run Seven Marathons on Seven Continents, and has co-edited several anthologies, including Beyond Belief: The Secret Lives of Women in Extreme Religions and True Stories, Vols. I-III. She has been profiled in Fitness Magazine and her books have been reviewed in O Magazine, The Atlantic, and The Washington Post.
