Small Business Saturday and Indies First - authors as personal shoppers!

Event date: 
Saturday, November 28, 2015 - 10:00am

A fantastic group of local authors and illustrators are joining the ranks of Red Balloon staff on Small Business Saturday on November 28th to help shoppers locate their perfect gifts! This program, called Indies First, began two years ago as the brain-child of acclaimed author Sherman Alexie as a way for authors to support their indie bookstores.

Red Balloon is honored to be a part of the Twin Cities literary community and are pleased to announce the following authors participating in Indies First this year: Brian Farrey, Eleanor Glewwe, Michael Hall, Joseph Kuefler, Diane C. Mullen, Pat Schmatz, Jane St. Anthony, and Stephanie Watson.
