The annual Small Business Saturday is coming at the end of this month on November 30th, and indie bookstores are a large part of that celebration. Authors are pitching in, too, with more than 285 authors signing up to handsell their books at 225 bookstores across the U.S.
As Bookselling This Week reported, some of the authors already on board are James Patterson at the Classic Bookshop in Palm Beach, FL; Jess Walter at Auntie's Bookstore, Spokane, WA; Martin Cruz Smith at Book Passage, Corte Madera, CA; A.S. King will be at Aaron’s Books in Lititz, PA; Mike Lawson at the University Bookstore in Renton, WA; Ace Atkins at Square Books, Oxford, MS; and many more.
