Indies First: Meet Your Local Authors! Plus Holiday Sales at Room

Event date: 
Saturday, November 30, 2013 - 2:15pm

A Room of One's Own is delighted to participate in the Indies First campaign, proposed by Sherman Alexie to encourage authors to volunteer for a shift at their favorite local indie bookstores this holiday season. We will have several local authorsworking at various times throughout the day, including Kevin Henkes, Michelle Wildgen, E.M. Kokie, Susanna Daniel, and Dale Kushner, recommending great gifts to our customers (and signing a few of their own books, if you're so inclined!) on November 30th, so stop in to meet and greet with them and support us  on Small Business Saturday!

You can read more about the movement, including Sherman Alexie's letter to his fellow authors, at the American Bookseller's Association's Indies First page.

Room will also be having our annual calendar sale! Between Friday, November 22nd and December 1st, get 15% off any 2014 calendar. Great chance to stock up for the holidays! Also, during the holidays as long as supplies last we will once again be giving away a FREE Booklover's Page-A-Day calendar for every purchase over $75.
