Authors For Indies, which started in 2015 led by author Janie Chang, is getting a fresh new start for 2018.
Since 2015, AFI has worked with authors, publishers and bookstores nationally to promote and advocate for independent bookstores in our communities. While that will still be the focus of the yearly event, there will also be some new and exciting changes.
Most notably, AFI has been rebranded to Canadian Independent Bookstore Day – a day to celebrate the independent bookstores that make our communities across the country so special which will take place on April 28, 2018.
Canadian Independent Bookstore Day is a day to visit a local bookstore, enjoy some games, events and prizes and continue to support local businesses.
We encourage all types of bookstores to sign up for 2018. You don’t need to have an author in your store to celebrate on Canadian Independent Bookstore Day - we are working on some special ideas to make your celebration a success!
We will be sending out more information to participating stores, authors and publishers so be sure to sign up for our email updates here: http://eepurl.com/dhdCcn

We look forward to celebrating with you on April 28, 2018!
