Authors for Indies is a national campaign in support of independent bookstores. On Saturday, April 29th, hundreds of Canadian authors will volunteer as guest booksellers at indie bookstores across the country. This is the day authors give back to the bookstores who support them every day of the year.
Independent bookstores are more than just retailers. Indie bookstores are spaces where you can open a book at random, fall into another world, and take it home with you forever. Where you can enter and breathe in that new book smell. Where you can talk to people who are passionate about recommending exactly the right book. Where you are part of a reading community.
If that’s how you feel about bookstores, then come out on Saturday April 29th. Every participating bookstore will feature different activities. We’ll be there to chat about good books, give readings, sign books, or call Bingo games, if that’s what the bookstore wants us to do. There could be music, cupcakes, kids’ events, art tables, or contests. For sure, every store will feature Canadian authors.
