Today is Small Business Saturday/Indies First Day! Your local independent bookstore just might have some authors and illustrators working in their shops, helping you find the perfect gift for your holiday shopping. Ozzie, Digger, Daisy and I will be working at University Book Store, Bellevue, this afternoon, along with Karyn King, Lisa L. Owens, and Samantha R. Vamos. And I know that Jaime Temairik and Kim Baker will be punching the time clock with Sherman Alexie at Secret Garden Books in Ballard. Come out and support your local bookstore and book creators! Read Sherman Alexie's letter about this event and find out which author/illustrators will be at YOUR local bookstore HERE!
