Don’t forget Authors for Indies next Saturday April 30. As well as supporting us writers, independent bookstores work hard to know and serve their specific communities. The independent bookstore I know the best is Hooked on Books in Penticton. Unfortunately it was destroyed by fire last fall and cannot participate this year in Authors for Indies. When they do reopen let’s support them even more as they continue to support Canadian authors and their local community.


On the 30th I will be at Mosaic Books in Kelowna. I know they have been equally wonderful to local authors so I look forward to meeting their staff again and, more importantly, central Okanagan readers.


If you are not in the Okanagan, check out your local bookseller any day of the week but particularly on the 30th where you will likely meet your local favourite authors.
