On Authors for Indies Day (Saturday, April 30 this year), Canadian authors show their appreciation for independent bookstores (indies) by volunteering as guest booksellers. Tomorrow, Authors for Indies strikes again! Authors will be at bookstores near you, chatting with customers, recommending books, and helping everyone appreciate the importance of indie bookstores to our communities and our cultural lives.
Four Talon authors (that we know of) will be out and about in Western Canada:
Walter Hildebrandt, poet and author of The Battle of Batoche, will be at Audreys Books in Edmonton from 11 AM until noon.
Poet Nikki Reimer will be at Shelf Life Books in Calgary from 3–5 PM, and her book DOWNVERSE will be there too! See the tweeted evidence:
Poet Rahat Kurd will be at Book Warehouse on Broadway in Vancouver, reading from Cosmophilia at 4 PM.
Karen X. Tulchinsky, author of The Five Books of Moses Lapinsky, will be at 32 Books in North Vancouver.
Don’t miss your chance to meet these and other wonderful authors in your city, and spend some time browsing your favourite indie bookstore!
