Meet Local Authors on Small Business Saturday

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday, a day to support small local businesses as you go about your holiday shopping.   We will have a number of local authors "volunteering " in the store throughout the day, chatting with customers and sharing their enthusiasm for  particular books.

  • 1 pm: Bill Newman, author of When the War Came Home
  • 2 pm: Susan Stinson, author of Spider in a Tree
  • 4 pm: Suzanne Strempek Shea, author of  Make a Wish But Not for Money, and Grace Lin, author of the Ling and Ting series for children

At Broadside, we're dedicated to good books, personal service, and community involvement.

We offer you the advantages of shopping online while supporting an independent bookstore. Through the search bar above you can go beyond books we have in stock to tap into a wider universe of some 2.4 million titles. Order through our site, pick your books up at the store, or have them shipped directly to you or to someone else. We now offer FREE GROUND SHIPPING on website orders over $25 (within the U.S.) Enjoy the site, or come visit us in the store, where our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.

We believe that reading enriches life, so we provide a high-quality selection of books on a wide variety of subjects;

We believe in personalized customer service, so we go the extra mile whenever we can;

And we believe there is a strong, mutually beneficial bond between independent bookstores and the communities they love and serve.

We appreciate your support.
