This Saturday April 30 will see the celebration of independent bookstores across the nation. Canadian authors will be helping out these local stores in sales, in conversing with clients, and in recommending the best reads out there.
I just found out about it today! Because of previous commitments, it’s with a sad heart that I announce I won’t be able to be a part of such a community-strong, grassroots movement. However, I want to encourage all of you to check out Authors for Indies and find a local store where you can meet local authors and support local business. Paperback has made a comeback. If you’re a book lover (as I am), you need to check it out!
Why is this so important? Personal connections are much stronger than web connections could ever hope to be. This is a chance for book lovers to feel connected to their community and connected to the individuals who share the same passion as they do. Touching people’s lives for the better is love.
