We were joined by 27 local authors, and two national authors participated long-distance!

Local authors were:
|Origami stars (made out of book pages!) folded by Margot as gifts for authors.|
National authors joining us were Mac Barnett (who gave us his top book recommendations, and signed and sent us bookplates for anyone who purchased his books today) and Andrew Smith (who signed and sent us bookplates for anyone who purchased his books today, plus wrote a personalized note on a manuscript page from that book and sent it along as well)!
|Christopher Lincoln (aka Billy Bones)|
|Nick Hupton, Mary Losure, and Margot Barry|
Authors chatted with customers, recommended books, put out our holiday book display, and signed copies of their own books.
There were also crafts for kids during the day!
|Making crafts with Debra Frasier.|
|Mike Wohnoutka and Catherine Clark|
|Signed book by Mike Wohnoutka.|
|Eileen Beha, William Alexander, and Rebecca Hahn.|

These are just a few shots from the day - we also posted photos all day on Twitter, so make sure to check out our account!
Thank you to all the authors who joined us to help today! And thank you to all our customers who came out on Small Business Saturday to support our bookstore for Indies First!
