Anansi Authors for Indies

Uncategorized

This Saturday (May 2nd), something very special is happening. All across Canada, 600 authors will gather at their favourite independent book stores in the first annual Authors for Indies Day. The day will be celebrated in all sorts of ways. Authors will be playing bookseller, recommending their personal favourites, giving readings – some bookstores will even have cake!

Here we’ve rounded up a list of appearances by Anansi authors. Or check out the entire list authorsforindies.com and see who will be at your local.
