Meet Local Authors Event

On Small Business Saturday, book-lovers were reminded to put indies first.

Malaprops in downtown Asheville participated in the nationwide movement.

More than a thousand authors staffed some 500 bookstores across the country, including 18 authors from here in the mountains.

They spent the day talking with customers and helping gift-wrap books.

It's an effort that reinforces a vital relationship between local authors and their hometown bookstores.

Cindy Norris, Malaprop's Bookstore event host, "we feel and the author's feel that a local independent book store helps authors careers and their writings and support their writing so much more than national book stores do."

The Indies First program also encourages authors to list local stores at the tops of their websites o encourage close-to-home sales.
