USA Today’s Bob Minzesheimer reports that, as part of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 30), more than 1000 authors will become volunteer booksellers for a day. Credit for the idea goes to author Sherman Alexi, who wrote an open letter urging other authors to volunteer. They will be at more than 400 independent bookstores. Wally Lamb will be at R.J. Julia in Madison, Conn. “Other prominent author/volunteers include Dave Barry (at Books & Books, Coral Gables, Fla.), Cheryl Strayed (Broadway Books, Portland, Ore.), Sarah Dressen (The Regulator, Durham, N.C.), and Ridley Pearson (Left Bank Books, St. Louis).
