10 NM AUTHORS TAKE PART IN PAGE ONE'S "INDIES FIRST" EVENT SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24
Page One Books will be participating in the nationwide "Indies First" event with 10 New Mexico authors on hand as "guest booksellers" for an hour or 90 minutes each on Saturday, November 24 - which also is Small Business Saturday.
These authors will be in store to recommend books that have influenced them or that they've enjoyed reading, in addition to promoting their own titles.
With the support of second-time Indies First national spokesperson Jason Reynolds (award-winning author of "When I Was the Greatest" and "Boy in the Black Suit," and the YA author of "Mile Morales: Spider-Man"), social media has been abuzz since early October with excitement for Indies First events to be held on Small Business Saturday, when authors from coast to coast will volunteer as guest booksellers at their favorite local indie bookshops.
In a video created to promote the event, Reynolds encourages his fellow authors to visit their local bookstore on November 24 in honor of Indies First/Small Business Saturday to show their support for the booksellers that support them year-round.
