Small Business Saturday/Indies First 

When: Sat., Nov. 30, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. 2013
Price: free
This holiday season, put your money where your heart is and shop locally. On Saturday, Mrs. Dalloway’s will participate in Small Business Saturday in solidarity with other independently owned bookstores across the country. Established by American Express in 2010, the annual event aims to support small businesses to order to boost local economies on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Inspired by the success of Small Business Saturday, the acclaimed author Sherman Alexie started the Indies First movement to encourage writers to volunteer at their neighborhood bookstores on the same day. Advocate for your community and shop at Mrs. Dalloway’s (2904 College Ave., Berkeley), where the East Bay’s own Annie Barrows, Mac Barnett, Patricia Polacco, and Anthony Marra will stop by throughout the day to chat with customers and sign copies of their books.
