Indies First-Small Business Saturday.

Sharon, what's going on this Saturday at Boswell?

"For the second year in a row, Boswell is happy to participate in Indies First/Small Business Saturday. This is an opportunity for small locally-owned businesses to provide a shopping alternative to Black Friday. Last year, author Sherman Alexie challenged his fellow authors to volunteer as guest booksellers at their favorite local independent bookstores. Thus, a tradition was born.

"Last year, we were lucky enough to host eleven local authors as guest booksellers, including Jessie Garcia and Lois Ehlert. This year, we have seven home-town authors who are volunteering their time - Bobby Tanzilo, Daniel Maguire, Joseph Ellwanger, Paul Geenen, Liam Callanan, Barbara Manger, and Amy Zhang. Please join us on Saturday, November 29 to shop local."

While we're on the subject, have you registered your American Express card yet? Qualified cardholders can shop at up to three qualifying stores on Small Business Saturday and earn a $10 statement credit if they spend $10 or more at the shop. It must be, by the way, on one transaction. But you have to register.

Happy to see this, Daniel. You are great at supporting local authors. And really, where better could we shop for holiday gifts?
