Meet T.C. Boyle

Author Supports Small Business Saturday

This Saturday, Santa Barbarans can get help selecting just the right tome from one of the nation’s most heralded writers: T.C. Boyle. Boyle will inhabit Granada Books for one day, serving as a guest bookseller in support of Small Business Saturday, which encourages folks to patronize independent stores. The author’s stint is the result of a movement motivated by poet/writer/filmmaker Sherman Alexie who sent a letter to fellow authors to do their bit for independent bookshops. Calling the campaign “Indies First,” Alexie wrote, “Now is the time to be a superhero for independent bookstores … God knows they’ve helped us over the years.” The Shop Small event takes place Saturday, November 30, at Granada Books, 1224 State Street.
