SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
Saturday, November 29th
*at Longfellow Books*
We know Portland readers are already committed to keeping it local and keeping our dollars right here in our own communities. So come out and have some fun while getting some holiday shopping done and supporting the Indies First movement, created last year by author, and longtime supporter of independent bookstores, Sherman Alexie along with the American Booksellers Association to celebrate local bookstores.
On Saturday, Novemeber 29th, when we all are awakening from the Thanksgiving slumber, we will be howling with laughter for another famous Draw-Off between legendary children's book author/illustrators Scott Nash and Chris Van Dusen. Scott and Chris will be drawing and then signing books from 11:00 - 1:00.
Following the Draw-Off, it will be time for the next phase of Indies First when we invite local bestselling authors to try their hand at bookselling! Richard Russo, Monica Wood, Brock Clarke, Colin Woodard and Genevieve Morgan will all be here from 1:00 - 3:00 with a group of some of their personal favorite reads along with plenty of their own amazing books that they will be more than happy to sign for you. Chat with these noted authors and see if they are as good at selling books as they are at writing them! Don't forget, we always have free gift wrapping so this is the perfect day to stock up on holiday gifts!
