Saturday, May 2, 2015, marks the inaugural Canadian Authors for Indies Day, when authors across Canada support independent bookstores by volunteering as guest booksellers and giving readings in store. 

Coach House authors Nicolas Billon, Heather Birrell, Susan Holbrook, Alexandra LeggatShawn Micallef and Jay MillAr will put their handselling skills to the test at stores across Ontario. (As former booksellers ourselves, we at Coach House hope they don't get stuck fielding too many 'I'm looking for a book with a blue cover...' requests. But a few would be okay.)
