INDIES FIRST 2016 Authors on a Bus! SHERMAN ALEXIE & FRIENDS
Poet, fiction/children’s book/screenplay writer, and literary instigator Sherman Alexie in 2013 helped start the Indies First program which brings authors into bookstores as the holiday season ensues. For this year, he and a roving cast of writers (of all kinds and genres), musicians, and scribes will make their way to three Seattle bookstores to recommend select titles for readers, and to sign copies of their own books, where applicable. The fun includes some of this city’s liveliest poets, hip-hop artists, children’s book authors, science fiction and fantasy writers, thriller writers, graphic novelists, and many of its primary literary critics and reviewers.
This lively day will start at Third Place Books Seward Park, 12 - 1 p.m. (www.thirdplacebooks.com/seward-park), continue to University Bookstore, 2 -3 p.m. (www.bookstore.washington.edu), and bring things home here at Elliott Bay starting at 4 p.m. Please join us - and enjoy!
