Indies First is a year-round campaign in support of independent bookstores by authors and publishers. Sherman Alexie came up with the idea for writers to support their local indie by volunteering to work at the store on Small Business Saturday in 2013.

We’ll have two celebrated local authors on hand to sign copies of their books and talk about THEIR favorite reads this season. Clete Barrett Smith, author of the middle grade series, Aliens on Vacation and a new young adult novel, Mr. 60% will be here from 12-2pm. And Craig Romano will here from 2-4pm to sign copies of his latest book, Urban Trails Bellingham which is sure to be a popular stocking-stuffer this year!

Saturday, November 25, is the day to shop small for Small Business Saturday.  Support your local, independent businesses so that we can continue to support our community (that’s you, by the way)! Get a great book recommendation at Village Books, try our new holiday fudge flavors at Paper Dreams and see what our neighbors in Fairhaven have in store for you at this annual event. Get out on the town and begin the holiday season in style in Fairhaven!
