For the Reporter

Hundreds of independent bookstores throughout the country hosting local authors on Small Business Saturday this weekend, thanks to a movement called Indies First.

Launched by noted author Sherman Alexie, Indies First encourages authors to volunteer at their local store, to give back some of the support that independent bookstores have traditionally given to authors.

Finally Found Books in Auburn hosts local mystery authors Jeanne Matthews, Susan Schrayer, Joyce Yarrow and Lisa Stowe as guest booksellers on Saturday. They will be in the store from 1 to 4 p.m., chatting with customers and recommending their favorite authors and books.

Other participating Indies First stores and authors may be found at

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.

Finally Found Books is at 3705 Auburn Way N.

For more information, call the bookstore at 253-246-7376.
