Fuck Black Friday and fuck doorbusters. Get drunk the day after Thanksgiving the way the pilgrims intended and celebrate Small Business Saturday instead. Independent booksellers observe the day after Black Friday with a program called Indies First, in which authors serve as guest booksellers. At participating bookstores (University Book Store, Elliott Bay Book Company, Queen Anne Book Company), kickass novelists like Karen Finneyfrock, Sonora Jha, Jonathan Evison, and Indies First creator Sherman Alexie will recommend their favorite books, personalize their own books, and generally just be available for you. Can’t buy that at a Target.
