In 2013, Sherman Alexie, acclaimed author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, launched “Indies First,” calling on his fellow authors to join a grassroots movement and show their support for independent booksellers by “volunteering” to work at their favorite indie bookstore on Small Business Saturday. Cheryl Strayed, the bestselling author of Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things, Torch, and the forthcoming Brave Enough, is the 2015 official spokesperson for Indies First. Village Lights is privileged to welcome local author,Robyn Ryle, as honorary bookseller for an afternoon. Her chapbook, The Face of Baseball, a collection of linked short stories, is soon to be released by Whiskey Paper Press and will launch at Village Lights. Come on in between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and let Robyn hand-sell you a book.
