Indies First @ Mac’s Backs-Books
Saturday | 10:00 AM–10:00 PM
Indies First is a national grassroots movement started by Sherman Alexie to encourage authors to support their local independent bookstores on Saturday, November 30th. Participating writers will visit bookstores to recommend their favorite reads to customers. The Saturday after Thanksgiving has become known as Small Business Saturday because of a very successful effort by American Express to urge shoppers to visit small independent retailers Thanksgiving weekend.
Several authors will be at Mac’s throughout the day on November 30th. Below is the evolving schedule; stop in to say hi, check out these author’s works and hear what they like to read.
