Bookwoman's Indies First - Author Event

Are you frustrated by the increasing commercialization of Black Friday? Would you like to support small and local businesses this holiday season, and get book recommendations from people who know the subject best? Well, you’re in luck! On November 29, BookWoman is proud to participate in Small Business Saturday in conjunction with Indies First (, a national celebration of the important role independent bookstores play in our lives and communities. 

In celebration of this event, BookWoman is delighted to host several local authors, including Spike Gillespie, Catherine Musemeche, MD, Pamela Ferguson, Debra Winegarten, Scott Wiggerman, Chandra Washington, Blythe Jewell, Mary Bryant Stafford, Kelly I. Hitchcock,Kate Payne, Charlotte Gullick, AR Rogers, Christine Leche, Joanne Blackerby and Ire'ne Lara Silva. Come to the store any time between noon and 6pm to hear authors discuss their works, have books signed, receive book recommendations, and do some holiday shopping. Light holiday-themed refreshments will be provided. The author schedule will be posted on-line soon, and perhaps others will join us.

This is a great opportunity to interact with authors in an informal setting, discussing everyone’s favorite topic: books! Learn what role independent bookstores like BookWoman play in supporting authors, and maybe bring home a signed book or two to give as gifts. As an additional perk, BookWoman will also be offering 10% off all 2015 Calendars. Don’t miss your chance to participate in Small Business Saturday with this fun and festive event! Support your local feminist bookstore – she supports you!
