Howell, MI (PRWEB) November 27, 2014
With the holidays upon us now, Blue Frog Books in Howell, MI doesn't let up on it's commitment to local first. Starting with "Small Business Saturday" on November 29th, Blue Frog Books will host one national author, Patrick Scott-Flores, appearing 2-4 pm with his award winning book, "Jumped In", and two local authors, from 1-3 pm, Charles Strong with "Butterflies in Autumn", and "Tales of Evelea", and appearing at 3-5 pm is Jill Stodola with her book, "Cadavers and Cocktails". Small Business Saturday is nationally advertised by American Express and other organizations to help bring awareness to the importance of small businesses, their diversity of offerings, and their attention to service. When shopping at local small independent stores, it has been proven that more of those dollars end up in your community's circulation than when shopping at chains or on-line.

On December 6th, author, Jon Milan with his historical look at Grand River Ave. On December 14th, A "Paws for a Cause" event for the Friends of Livingston County Animal Shelter that will bring author Peggy Johncox and her dog Halle, with her children's book, and Beth Duman and her dog Charlie, with her dog training book.
