Saturday, April 30, is Independent Bookstore Day all across the country. Indie bookstores in all 50 states will be celebrating—hundreds of them!This year, we absolutely, positively need it more than ever!
Some indies will host safe, fun in-store events and some will take part via a host of on-line events. Either way, there is something for everyone — kids’ events, author panels, fun giveaways. You can check it all out here and join any of the on-line events you choose to: http://www.indiebookstoreday.com/
Not surprisingly, indie bookstores have come to our rescue while we’ve all been sheltering at home — and we as readers, writers, and book lovers have helped keep them going. A mutually empowering and fruitful love affair — what better kind can there be?
Just consider all that indies bookstores do for us:
• They give us safe, soothing places to explore the world.
• They love and support both debut and established authors.
• They help foster a life-long love of reading in kids.
• They provide forums for discussing issues that matter to us.
I could go on and on. Indies are the best! This year, I’m going to show my wonderful local indie, Watchung Booksellers, some love in my hometown of Montclair, NJ and order books and a gift card for the holidays. How about you? Indies support authors, so let’s support them back as we all write on!
