Author Love for Independent Bookstores

Authors love independent bookstores for some of the same reasons the rest of us do: they are hubs for community, their booksellers make fantastic recommendations, and they are great physical spaces to celebrate love of books.

Many authors also attribute part or all of their success to the Indie booksellers that handsell their books to customers and champion their work to communities around the country.
