It was a day of celebration at Bank Street Book Store, an INDIES FIRST select store. INDIES FIRST is a special day of reading in recognition of neighborhood bookstores. The date coordinates with Small Business Saturday by encouraging holiday shoppers to support independent booksellers, a most precious and valuable resource for all.
An all-star lineup of authors and illustrators came out in droves to support Bank Street on this very special day.
Here are some photographic highlights:
