Saturday, April 30th, 2016
10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

This Spring, Bolen Books is honoured to participate in the second annual Canadian Authors for Indies Day. Founded in 2015, and based on the success of Independent Bookstore Day south of the border, Authors for Indies day is a partnership between booksellers and authors to celebrate the independent bookstore and its continuing importance in the era of big-box bookselling, online retails, and e-reading. Authors and publishers agree that independents are a cornerstone of the bookselling world, and Authors for Indies day is a national event to honour that.

So what does it look like? Authors across the country will be dropping in to independent bookstores on April 30th to spend a few hours working as booksellers! So if you're looking for your next great read, why not get a recommendation straight from the source. It's a reminder that bookselling isn't as easy as just putting books on a shelf. It requires knowledgeable booksellers who can and will work one on one with you to help find exactly what you're looking for.

Are you hunting for some new reading material? Pop in to Bolen Books on Saturday, April 30th from 10:00HCC sponsor AM to 2:00 PM and get a recommendation from an author. We'll have Dawn Green, Sarah Castille, and Tricia Dower joining us to sub in as booksellers for a few hours. And of course, our regular roster of helpful staff will be here as well.

But wait! That's not all. Are you a colouring book fan? How about a Neil Gaiman fan? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, you're in luck. To show their support for Authors for Indies day, Neil Gaiman, Chris Riddell, and HarperCollins Canada are releasing the Neil Gaiman Colouring Book on April 30th, but only in independent bookstores participating in Authors for Indies Day. Want to grab a copy? Join us on Authors for Indies Day - we'll have lots here.
