Bookshop and Local Authors Join Nationwide Celebration of Independent Bookstores
Bayfield, ON April 25th
Bookstores are the fabric of Canada’s literary community. We anchor neighbourhoods. We provide space and ideas with which to expand. We make sure that Canadian voices resonate. On April 29, independent bookstores across the country, along with the authors we love, will celebrate as a part of Canadian Authors for Indies.
Here in Bayfield, The Village Bookshop
and authors including Judith Keightly and M.H. Callway
will join forces in a special in-store celebration.
Come out and meet authors who will be guest booksellers for the day, have your books signed and soak in the atmosphere during this fun, one-day event. Activities planned for April 29 at the store include: free coffee and pastries, and great conversations.
Authors for Indies Day is a nationwide event organized by authors to celebrate the important role that independent bookstores play in our communities, our everyday lives and the promotion of Canadian voices in literature. This special day gets people out to local bookstores, showcases local writers and gives us all a chance to support Canadian bookstores and authors.
So far, nearly 500 authors and 100 bookstores across the country have signed up to participate.
