Kathie Hightower Shares Fav Books at Cloud & Leaf’s Indies First, Nov. 28, 2015
November 28, 2015 at 11:00 am - 4:00 pm CST
Kathie Hightower, coauthor of Military Spouse Journey and Stories Around the Table is one of several Oregon-based authors who will participate in Indies First at the Cloud & Leaf Bookstore, 148 Laneda Ave, Manzanita, Oregon on Saturday, November 28, 2015, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Pacific. That day is also Small Business Saturday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year and the perfect time to find books for holiday gifts.
Indies First is a way for authors to show their support and gratitude for their local independent booksellers. One of the things independent bookstores do well is handsell books, introducing readers to books they might not hear about otherwise. These can be bestsellers, but just as often they are great books from small publishing houses or self-published books that don’t quickly get press, titles that might not gain a foothold in the book world without the efforts of indies.
Authors participating in Cloud & Leaf’s Indies First event will share some of their favorite books–not their own books, but other books they personally love. The local authors who will be at Cloud & Leaf in addition to Kathie Hightower include: Lauren Kessler (Counterclockwise, The Write Path), Holly Lorincz (Smart Mouth, How Do I Find A Literary Agent?), Phyllis Mannan (Torn Fish), Deborah Reed (Things We Set on Fire, Carry Yourself Back to Me), Floyd Skloot (Approaching Winter), Mark Scott Smith (Enemy in the Mirror).
