Welcome to Bookmark!
On Saturday, May 2nd 600 Canadian authors are doing something wonderful! It’s called Authors for Indies Day. That’s when authors across Canada support independent bookstores by volunteering as guest book sellers.
Author and spokesperson, Ann-Marie MacDonald says, “Independent bookstores enrich our communities. They provide gathering places for discovering new authors, sharing favourite books, and expanding our horizons. Store managers are thoughtful curators, bringing in books they know customers will love. Our neighbourhoods would be much diminished without our local bookstores.“
So come out to Bookmark in both Charlottetown and Halifax and meet a local author or two. Bring the family. Chat with authors, reader to reader, about the books and authors you love and we’ll tell you about the ones we love. Most of all, come and get to know your local bookstore.
