Indies First is a day of activities and events in support of independent bookstores that takes place on Small Business Saturday (November 24, 2018). On a day dedicated to supporting the local businesses that help create jobs, boost the local economy, and preserve neighborhoods, Octavia Books is proudly hosting a team of local authors who are putting "indies first" by volunteering as front-line booksellers for the day. Do visit us on this fun and exciting day. And, ask the authors for a recommendation or to sign copies of their own books. And we will be giving away lots special gifts, too -- from tote bags to t-shirts.
