Authors for Indies Day coming to Black Bond Books


The May 2 event is designed to show writers’ support for independent bookstores

Black Bond Books will be among hundreds of venues across Canada for the first annual Authors For Indies Day, on Saturday (May 2).

The event is designed to show writers’ support for independent bookstores – both as a cornerstone of the book trade, and also as a vital part of local shopping experiences.

Black Bond’s event will bring three authors to the store (15562 24 Ave.) for readings, book signings and informal chats with customers from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Best selling writer Daniel Kalla, author of The Far Side of the Sky and Rising Sun Falling Shadow – and the forthcoming Nightfall Over Shanghai will be on the premises from 10 to 10:45 a.m.

Local writer Robert Mackay, author of Soldier of the Horse and Terror on the Alert, will be there from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Also present will be children’s author Danielle Marcotte (Scamper the Airplane Thief, This Airplane Can Dance, Why Does My Dog Smile, also available in French editions), from 1 to 3 p.m.

In-store draws and other events will be offered all day at the store.
