" Saturday, November 30th is Small Business Saturday, an initiative that encourages consumers to shop local for the holiday season. This year, hundreds of authors will be bookselling for a day on Small Business Saturday, thanks to Indies First, the brainchild of beloved writer Sherman Alexie. Simon & Schuster, a CBS company, and its authors recommend you start your local shopping November 30th in a bookstore, where might just see some of your favorite authors hand-selling their favorite novels!
Here are a few wonderful bookstores in the Boston area to support on Small Business Saturday!
