SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) April 19, 2021
Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its showcase event with 2021 Independent Bookstore Day Ambassador Glennon Doyle. The public can register for the online conversation on Eventbrite now. The event has an optional donation button, and all proceeds will support the Book Industry Charitable Foundation’s (Binc) bookseller safety net. Moderated by author Alexandra Elle, the conversation will also include dedicated time for Doyle to answer audience questions.
Doyle has always been vocal in her support of independent bookstores. She is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Untamed, a Reese’s Book Club selection that has sold over two million copies; the #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior, an Oprah’s Book Club selection; and bestseller Carry On, Warrior.
“I’m honored to be the 2021 Bookstore Day Author Ambassador to support these community businesses so they can keep doing the vital work of supporting our communities,” noted Doyle.
Alexandra Elle is a writing-to-heal facilitator and the author of After the Rain, Neon Soul, and Today I Affirm: A Journal That Nurtures Self-Care. Writing came into her life by way of the exploration of healing through journaling. Elle teaches workshops and retreats assisting others in finding their voices through storytelling, poetry, and narrative writing. She also hosts the hey, girl. podcast.
