Small Business Saturday is the counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Small Business Saturday, holiday shoppers are encouraged to patronize locally owned, independent, brick and mortar businesses rather than visiting big box retailers or making purchases via e-commerce. To further promote shopping at brick and mortar stores, in 2013 Sherman Alexie, asked fellow authors to “be a superhero for independent bookstores [and] spend an amazing day hand-selling books at local bookstores.” Your locally run independent bookstores is more than just a store, it’s a community center passionate about bringing readers and writers together. On Saturday, November 30th BookPeople of Moscow will host a book signing by local authors.
Be sure to stop by and purchase a book by your favorite author: Not before. Not after. Not online.
