Authors showcase their books across Canada

Black Bond Books in Haney Place Mall hosts guest booksellers.

Canadian authors will be showing their appreciation on Saturday for independent bookstores.

The second annual Authors for Indies event will happen across the country and feature local authors volunteering as guest booksellers.

Maple Ridge author Yvonne Poulin, author of Aging Safely in Your Home, will be at Black Bond Books in Haney Place Mall.

“I do like to inspire independent bookstores because they were around first and it’s the human element that you can’t get from online connections,” said Poulin.

“The other thing I am looking forward to is meeting the other authors who are invited for the day and exploring the different genres,” she said.

Poulin says one of the first things she does when she opens a new book is to flip the cover and read about the author.

“It adds a whole new dimension to the experience of reading your story. And to be actually able to meet the author in person would be an incredible bonus,” Poulin said.

Author Jaime Windle will be at Black Bond Books from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Laura Thornton from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Yvonne Poulin and Brooke Carter from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Kallie George and Jason Chabot from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
