Join me and a bunch of other others like Marissa Stapley and Plum Johnson at Book City Bloor West Village from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Authors for Indies Day (Saturday, April 29, 2017), the annual event held at independent bookstores (indies) all across Canada.
On this day, Canadian authors show their appreciation for indie bookstores by volunteering as guest booksellers. AFI is a different sort of literary event -- it's a grassroots volunteer-run campaign whose goal is to raise awareness of indie bookstores and how important they are: to our communities, our reading lives, and our cultural well-being.
Tell your friends, family, and colleagues about Authors for Indies Day. And come out to an independent bookstore to meet authors, join in some activities, celebrate, shop, and have fun.
