I got an unexpected e-mail from the owner of our local bookstore the other evening. Roxanne runs an independent bookstore here in Fergus called, fittingly enough, Roxanne's Reflections.
Her store might have been the first store my wife and I visited upon moving to Fergus, but it could just have easily been this store just down the street.
In the e-mail, Roxanne told me about Independents' Day, the day when independent bookstores across Canada hold special events and sales to promote reading and books. This year Independents' Day falls on October 15th. Roxanne also likes to feature a local author each year and this year she asked if I would be willing to come in and sign some books. I told her of course and even offered to do a reading.
So, if you're in the Fergus area on October 15th between 1:00 and 2:00 pm please make your way to Roxanne's Reflections on St Andrew St. She has a great selection of books and you couldn't go too far wrong if you picked this one up:
You might just be able to get someone to sign it.
