Indies First Small Business Saturday! says
Eagle Eye Books is very proud to be one of hundreds of independent bookstores across the country who will be hosting local authors this November 28, Small Business Saturday, thanks to a movement called Indies First. Launched by noted author Sherman Alexie, Indies First encourages authors to volunteer at their local store, to give back some of the support that independent bookstores have traditionally given to authors. Lynn Cullen, Sandi Curry, Ren and Helen Davis, Jessica Handler, Joshilyn Jackson, Collin Kelley, Fran Stewart, Amanda K Williams, Susan Puckett, Ann Hite, Jennifter McQuiston and Susan Crawford are just a few of the authors Eagle Eye will host as guest booksellers who will chat with customers and recommend their favorite books.

Indies First also encourages authors-and anybody who wants to sell a book through a website-to make a "Buy" button linking to an indie bookstore the FIRST among all e-retailer choices on their websites.

Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. It is a day dedicated to supporting the local businesses that help to create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods. Last year, U.S. consumers who were aware of Small Business Saturday reported spending an estimated $14.3 billion with independently-owned businesses on the day, based on the Small Business Saturday Insights Survey, making a big impact on local communities. The day has been championed by elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., including President Obama.
