Saturday, April 29 - AUTHORS FOR INDIES DAY! #AFI2017


Authors for Indies Day (Saturday, April 29, 2017) is an annual event held at independent bookstores (indies) all across Canada. On this day, Canadian authors show their appreciation for indie bookstores by volunteering as guest booksellers. AFI is a different sort of literary event -- it's a grassroots volunteer-run campaign whose goal is to raise awareness of indie bookstores and how important they are: to our communities, our reading lives, and our cultural well-being.

WE ARE THRILLED TO WELCOME GUY GAVRIEL KAY AS OUR GUEST BOOKSELLER! From 2:00 to 4:00 you can get some reading advice from this internationally acclaimed author of over a dozen works of fantasy fiction. His most recent book, Children of Earth and Sky, will be available in paperback. Visit Guy's website:

You could win $1000 worth of Penguin Random House Books!
