Authors for Indies Day

Authors for Indies Day is coming Saturday May 2. There are now 113 bookstores hosting 547 authors across Canada. Local stores, everywhere. Fiction writers, poets, non-fiction authors…
Here’s the Ontario’s list. If you’re by Almonte, try Mill Street Books, 52 Mill Street. It’s got a beautifully curated set of books so I always get a treasure or few. Jan Andrews, Susan Delacourt, and Lianne Shaw will be on hand.
The FB group and site are a big vague on particulars but what’s been conveyed to me is that over the day authors come in to a meet and greet.
Authors are on hand to speak to the reading public and the book stores have stocked titles that featured authors can recommend personally.
For Ottawa people, I’ll save you a first click.
I’ll be at Books on Beechwood with Rachel EugsterAllison Van Diepen, Susan Delacourt, Susan Atkinson, Sarah Jennings, and Elizabeth Todd Doyle.
Each person has a slot from morning to evening. I’ll be there noon to 2. That’s 35 Beechwood Avenue. If there’s someone you want to see, check with the store for when the author will be there.
Also in Ottawa, Kaleidoscope Kid’s Books, 1018 Bank St. (across from TD Place) with authors: Rachel EugsterCaroline PignatKate Jaimet Tim Wynne JonesAmanda West LewisFrances Itani, Kathy Clark, Don Cummer, and Eleanor Creasey.
Octopus Books, 116 Third Ave with authors: Monia MazighWaubgeshig Rice, and Peggy Blair.
Perfect Books, 258A Elgin Street with authors: Barbara FradkinStewart Dudley, and Nick Wilkshire.
Come out and rah rah the non-chain book store, get books signed, and see if there’s something new to pique your interest.
