Saturday November 29 I’ll be working at Book People

indies_first_496x353This Saturday I’ll be joining the staff at Book People, Austin’s wonderful independent bookstore, for Indies First. Here’s some background:

Last year, bestselling author Sherman Alexie issued a call to arms to authors nationwide: show your support of your local independent bookstore by volunteering to work! And thus was born Indies First, happening for the second consecutive year on Small Business Saturday, November 29.

With the vocal support of internationally recognized authors Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer and Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket), we’re excited to see this year’s Indies First celebration continue to strengthen the important relationship between authors and booksellers. Through authors events, in-store displays, bookseller recommendations and more, our goal is to expose the work of our talented local literary community to a wide audience of readers and help you discover your next great, homegrown read.

I’m going to join Austin authors Edward Carey and Mark Pryor on the Book People sales floor. Come on down if you’re in town. I’ll be happy to recommend some great books to you.

My shift is from noon – 1 p.m.
