Back in the 1950’s one of my Canadian heroes, Mel Hurtig, was an Indie bookstore owner and publisher. In his Edmonton stores, authors could stage plays, perform readings and drink coffee with patrons. How cool was that?
This lucky author will be reading at one of these locations (10702 Jasper Avenue) on Sunday June 5th at 2:00. The bookstore is now named Audreys Books Ltd. It’s owned by two invincible spirits, Steve and Sharon Budnarchuk, who have made this author from the east feel quite welcome in the west.
Please tell friends and family to drop by on Sunday afternoon to say “Hello!” and to support these Indie Booksellers.
