Indies First Small Business Celebration
With guest bookseller Amy Ignatow, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Amy Ignatow, author of the Popularity Papers books, will be joining us as our guest bookseller as part of our Indies First, Small Business Saturday Celebration. Indies First is a national campaign of activities and events in support of independent bookstores, first envisioned by author Sherman Alexie in 2013. It kicks off each November, on Small Business Saturday (November 28, 2015), when independent bookstores host authors as honorary booksellers throughout the day to help sell and sign books, share recommendations, give readings, and more.
Saturday, December 5, 1:00 p.m.
Come spend time with our good friend Judy Schachner, author of the Skippyjon Jones Books, and discover her newest book, Dewey Bob. Dewey Bob Crockett is a durn cute raccoon who lives by himself in a house filled to the brim with the wonderful objects he collects. Buttons, wheels, furniture and bricabrac adorn his cozy quarters and keep him busy as he finds and fixes, turning trash into treasures. But there’s something missing from Dewey’s collections—a friend! He tries gathering up some critters and bringing them home in his shopping cart, but that doesn’t work out so well. In the end, a friend does come Dewey’s way, and, with a little DIY help from this clever raccoon, returns again and again.
