Ever wonder what would happen if a bunch of well-known authors invaded your favorite indie bookstore?
This past weekend, patrons around the country saw it happen. Sherman Alexie’s “Indies First” project successfully launched with writers around the nation volunteering at local independent booksellers, meeting with readers, selling books, and, in the case of children’s book author Bob Shea, cleaning out bookstore refrigerators.
Authors participating in “Indies First” included Alexie, James Patterson, Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket), and Kim Dower, among others. More “Indies First” dates are planned for the future.
