I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of the amazing independent booksellers who have sold books on my behalf and also to receive support from local booksellers. With Author for Indies Day coming up on April 29th, if you’re looking for copies of Admission Requirements, please do buy it from your local independent bookstore.
Here are some of the independent bookstores across Canada that are carrying Admission Requirements:
Ottawa– Perfect Books, 258A Elgin Street
Hamilton– Bryan Prince Booksellers, 1060 King St West
Toronto–Ben McNally Books, 366 Bay Street
BookCity, 2354 Bloor Street West, 1430 Yonge Street and 348 Danforth Avenue.
Glad Day Bookstore, 499 Church Street
Type Books, 883 Queen Street West & 427 Spadina Road in Toronto (Thanks to Type Books for their recent write-up of Admission Requirements in their April 2017 reading list. I will be reading at Type Books on May 24th.)
Vancouver– The Paper Hound Bookshop, 344 W Pender Street
If you see copies of Admissions at your local independent bookstore, please do let me know. In the meantime, visit your neighborhood brick-and-mortar booksellers and make the trip even more worthwhile by asking the owners how they came to run a bookstore in the age of Amazon. There’s some fascinating stories, from one owner who after a career in teaching was retired and bored out of his mind, to another who worked over a decade in used bookstores around Vancouver’s vanishing ‘book row’. I’ll leave you to uncover the rest.
