Support local authors and independent bookstores by joining us on November 29 at 6pm for Indies First at Brazos! Come drink, eat cheese, and talk books with Houston writers Mark Dostert (UP IN HERE) and Lacy M. Johnson (THE OTHER SIDE).

Last year, Sherman Alexie invented Indies First as a way for authors and bookstores to come together for Small Business Saturday. Indies First allows writers to visit their neighborhood bookstores to meet readers and chat about beloved books. This year, Dostert and Johnson will give a presentation on some of their favorites.

So what are those favorites? Carl Sagan’s COSMOS, and Oliver Jeffers’s STUCK, and…well, why are we telling you? Swing by for our Indies First party to find out the rest!
