Indies First Author & Illustrator Registry

Indies First, the campaign of authors, publishers, and readers celebrating independent bookstores and local communities, happens on Small Business Saturday, November 25, 2017. Events and festivities will be held in hundreds of independent bookstores across the country. 

ABA is pleased to announce that Jason Reynolds is the 2017 Indies First Spokesperson! Watch Jason's video here. He will volunteer on November 25 at East City Bookshop in Washington, D.C.

If you would like a store to contact you about volunteering for an Indies First activity, please complete the form below. Names will remain in the registry for all future Indies First events. (You may, of course, contact your local indie directly rather than sign-up on the registry.)

A major component of Indies First is authors linking to local bookstores, or to, for book sales. Visit the store locator to find an indie near you; contact the store for instructions on how to link to its website for book sales.

Booksellers will contact you by your preferred method. There is no obligation for you to volunteer at or partner with a store that may contact you, and there is no guarantee that a store will contact you.

Contact if you wish to be removed from the registry.
