Indies First comes to Loganberry on Thanksgiving Weekend 2019

Friday, November 29: 10am-8:30pm
Saturday, November 30: 10am-7pm
Sunday, December 1: 12pm-6pm

Loganberry Books is excited to once again join independent bookstores across the US for Indies First, a nationwide campaign to connect Thanksgiving Weekend shoppers with all that their local bookstores have to offer, including the chance to meet authors and get personalized holiday gift recommendations.

As in years past, the American Booksellers Association has named a national author spokesperson to help promote the event. NK Jemisin, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Earth Trilogy and the only author to ever win the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Novel three years in a row, was announced as 2019 Indies First Spokesperson on August 14, 2019. "Indie Bookstores do a lot to support authors and readers...and we need to support them back," said Jemisin in her statement encouraging readers and writers to visit their local bookstores for Indies First 2019.

Loganberry will expand on the official national festivities (which happen on Small Business Saturday), by offering author events, special gifts, and holiday treats throughout the day on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 29, 30 and Dec. 1) at Loganberry Books (13015 Larchmere Boulevard, Shaker Heights, Ohio.) Indies First coincides with the annual Larchmere Holiday Stroll, now in its 48th year. "A dozen eateries, a dozen services, and two dozen shops contribute to four dozen years of tradition on Larchmere Boulevard," says Loganberry Books founder and owner, Harriett Logan, "and we hope to keep the tradition alive."

In addition to festive treats and lagniappes (a North American Creole word meaning "free gift included with purchase") to thank customers, the highlight of Loganberry Books' Indies First program will be the lineup of authors all weekend. While many authors, like DM Pulley and Laura DeMarco, are local favorites, others, like Christopher Healy from New Jersey, are visiting from out of town to join in the festivities. The current schedule of authors, subject to updates and changes includes:


1pm: Erin O'Brien: Rust Belt Burlesque
2pm: Laura DeMarco: Mark Twain's America: Then & Now
3pm: Jameel Davis: Cultivating Minds: To Own Thyself
3pm: Martin Gitlin: Kyrie Irving: Uncle Drew, Little Mountain, and Enigmatic NBA Superstar
4pm: Christopher Healy: This Is Not That Kind of Book!


11am: *Dr. Natasha Wilson: Swirlees and The Big Apple*
