Indies First, A Celebration of Independent Bookstores



In this season of giving thanks, I am truly grateful for my neighborhood children’s bookstore, Bank Street.

On Saturday, November 28, Indies First celebrates a special day of reading and literacy activities in recognition of independent bookstores. The date coordinates with Small Business Saturday and is meant to encourage holiday shoppers to support independent booksellers across the country.

Bank Street Book Store has invited authors and illustrators to help celebrate this very special day. And check out this amazing schedule!
