A DAY OF APPRECIATION FOR CANADA'S INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES

Authors for Indies is a national grassroots movement in support of independent bookstores.

On Saturday April 29, 2017 hundreds of Canadian authors volunteered as guest booksellers at indie bookstores across the country. This is the day we authors give back to the bookstores who support us every day of the year.

But independent bookstores need your support every day of the year, not just on Authors for Indies Day.

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 you also know what a pleasure it is to browse in a bookstore.    

Use FIND A STORE (on the menu bar above) to locate a bookstore near you and make a point of dropping in.
