Help an independent book seller TODAY!

I love all book stores, but the independents are the heart and soul of the publishing world.

Books of Wonder is a great one in New York that just got handed a raw deal from a tenant.

They need some cash to help cover the bills, fast. They are auctioning off some AMAZING artwork, including signed Sendak prints, Alan Lee, Lane Smith.... Kate Camillo... so many!

You can find out more about the campaign here. (I've got my dibs on the Alan Lee postcards, so hands off!)

Peter Glassman, the proprieter, has kindly accepted my offer of some signed Neil Flambé stuff (books, etc) and an original print.

Here's the print.

Do your best to help Peter, if you can, and keep supporting great kids books stores in Canada... such as (but definitely NOT limited to)....

Mabel's Fables

Blue Heron Books


Mulberry Bush Bookstore

Laughing Oyster

The Tanner's Children's Bookshop

The Cookbook Store (of course!)

Ella Minnow

Type Books 

Book City 

The Canadian Booksellers Association

And please, if you are an indie bookseller, add a comment below with a link to your store.
