We round out the month of April by taking part in the national Authors for Indies Day.

Authors for Indies Day is a day when authors show their appreciation for Canadian independent bookstores (indies) by volunteering as guest booksellers for the day. When you visit an indie bookstore on AFI Day, you'll have the opportunity to meet local authors, have a chat and get book recommendations from them. You may buy a book or two, or just get to know your local bookstore better.  Authors are doing this to raise awareness of indie bookstores and how important they are to our communities, our reading lives, and our cultural well-being. It's a day to give some love to your local neighbourhood bookstore. 
Stay tuned for the list of authors who will be spending time with us in Westdale.

Free, everyone welcome.
