A few writers become booksellers for a day

Posted By on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 at 6:03 PM

New Orleans noir writers Chris Wiltz and Bill Loehfelm will be behind the counter of Garden District Book Shop this Saturday, ringing up books for holiday shoppers. Though the titles of their most recent books might not intuitively align them with holiday cheer - Wiltz's last books is Shoot the Money, Loehfelm's is The Devil in Her Way - the writers are volunteering to give back to the bookstore as part of Small Business Saturday. The event is nationwide and aims to celebrate a dedication to shopping local.

At Octavia Books, six writers will be signing and recommending books, including Carolyn Kolb, Rebecca Snedeker, George Bishop, Tom Sancton, Sylvaine Sancton and Lawrence Powell. For a schedule of when to find them, click here.

Indies First, the campaign started by author Sherman Alexie that helps promote Small Business Saturday, encourages authors around the country to be "superheroes" for independent booksellers by dedicating a few hours to working in the aisles.
