Small Business Saturday and Indies First


Indies First is a year-round campaign in support of independent bookstores by authors and publishers. Sherman Alexie came up with the idea for writers to support their local indie by volunteering to work at the store on Small Business Saturday in 2013. We’ll have two celebrated local authors on hand to sign copies of their books and talk about their favorite reads this season. Barbara Davis-Pyles, author of the new childrens’ book, Grizzly Boy, will be here from 11 am-noon. Local memoirist, John Hoyte, will here from noon-1 pm to sign copies of his book, Persistence of Light. Both of these titles will make great gifts this season. From 6-8 pm, we are pleased to welcome Peter Ali to the main floor of the store to play his indigenous flute for you as you shop. Saturday, November 24, is the day to shop small for Small Business Saturday. Support your local, independent businesses so that we can continue to support our community.

Get out on the town and begin the holiday season in style in Fairhaven.
