CELEBRATE INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES
AT BROADWAY BOOKS
Broadway Books is pleased to announce that it will be hosting several local authors as guest booksellers on Indies First Day/Small Business Saturday, November 29th. Chelsea Cain, Brian Benson, Karen Karbo, Ben Parzybok, Whitney Otto, Brian Doyle, David Shafer, Natalie Serber, Liz Crain, and Joe Kurmaskie will be some of our local writers in the store between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm, chatting with customers and recommending some of their favorite books.
Hundreds of independent bookstores across the country will be hosting local authors on this day, thanks to a movement called Indies First. Started last year by noted author Sherman Alexie, Indies First encourages authors to launch the holiday season by rallying support for their local bookstores.
Small Business Saturday, founded by American Express in 2010, is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is a day dedicated to helping support the local businesses that help to create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods. Since opening in 1992, Broadway Books has been committed to preserving a strong literary community in Portland.
We hope you can join us on this fun and festive holiday weekend!
