On September 1, 2013 beloved novelist Sherman Alexie sent an open letter to his fellow writers encouraging them to join him in giving back to indie bookstores on Small Business Saturday with a campaign he called "Indies First." "Now is the time to be a superhero for independent bookstores. I want all of us (you and you and especially you) to spend an amazing day hand-selling books at your local independent bookstore on Small Business Saturday (that's the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 30 this year, so you know it's a huge weekend for everyone who, you know, wants to make a living). Here's the plan: We book nerds will become booksellers. We will make recommendations. We will practice nepotism and urge readers to buy multiple copies of our friends' books. Maybe you'll sign and sell books of your own in the process. I think the collective results
could be mind-boggling (maybe even world-changing)."
Inspired by Sherman Alexie's letter, we asked some of our favorite local authors to be booksellers for a day (or a few hours) at Charis and share their favorite books with all of you!
So from 12-2pm learn Pearl Cleage's life changing favorites.
