Black Friday Blowout Sale

loc_BookstoreCafe_101811For some, it’s the most eagerly-awaited day of the holiday season; for the rest of us, it’s the most dreaded.

This year, make Black Friday a little less painful at the Housing Works Bookstore Café’s annual sale. Deals abound in true Black Friday fashion, but rest assured that your purchases, even at 30% off (!!!), still go to a good cause.

Perhaps even more exciting is their all-day-long “Blackout Happy Hour,” where the unbeatable drink specials will surely convince you to spend your yearly avoid-all-humanity day with the good people of Housing Works.


Authors As Booksellers


The tables will turn at Brooklyn’s Greenlight Bookstore next weekend as four local authors take on the sales floor in support of independent bookstores. Ayana Mathis, Justin Torres, Paul Zelinsky, Michael Buckley, and Jeffrey Rotter will work as booksellers in shifts all day, speaking with fans and leading customers to some of their own favorite books.

The event is brought to you by Indies First, an organization dedicated to the support and preservation of small, independent bookstores and invites authors to get more involved.
