The Writers Union of Canada is helping Authors for Indies get the word out to members across Canada.
We've set a date for Authors for Indies 2017 -- April 29! Everyone, please mark your calendars.
Big congratulations and many thanks to all the wonderful bookstores, authors, publishers, sponsors who contributed to Authors for Indies Day!
What would make April 30 a true success? For it to be a great retail day for stores.
We were booksellers without a home. Home is a bookstore to indie employees & The Avid Reader was closing after 21 great years. Then, it happened - the magic that’s only found among independent bookstores.
I’m not sure who had more fun at the first annual Authors for Indies last year – the authors, our customers or our bookstore staff!
As a kid, grocery-shopping day was my favourite of the week. While my mom perused the aisles unencumbered, my sister and I were set loose in our farm community’s local library.
I wish I could lay my hands on a copy of my very first résumé—the one that landed me my very first part-time job: a job at an indie bookstore.
