Indies First Small Business Saturday 2019
Once Upon A Time Bookstore is pleased to announce Indies First day, on Saturday, November 30, 2019. Independent businesses throughout Montrose Shopping Park are coming together to celebrate their local bonds as part of the annual Small Business Saturday activities. We are excited to host some special local authors throughout the day as well as exciting prizes and sales.
Indies First – a collaboration among publishers, retailers, and authors– is an annual campaign to celebrate independent bookstores and the communities that support them. Hundreds of indies across the country will be hosting local authors and holding events on November 30. Other participating Indies First stores and authors may be found on IndieBound.org.
Small Business Saturday, founded by American Express in 2010, is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is a day dedicated to helping support the local businesses that help to create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods.

Following 12-year old recently orphaned Joseph on his quest to get his only family back -his beloved horse Sarah- author Gemeinhart brings together race relations in the late 1800's, western lore and a clear-eyed pragmatism that, coupled with his signature action/adventure plot twists and a kindheartedness thread permeating the story, this wonderful, evocative and first rate middle grade title builds on his exceptional debut (The Honest Truth). This is an author that has clearly established himself as a must read for warm hearted, realistic adventures. - Maureen
