FARMINGTON — Devaney Doak & Garrett Booksellers, 193 Broadway,  will host Maine authors Monica Wood and Peter Pfeiffer as guest booksellers on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28. Wood, a Portland resident, and Pfeiffer, a Solon resident will be in the store from 10 a.m. to noon to talk with customers and recommend their favorite books, including Wood’s “When We Were The Kennedy’s,” and Pfeiffer’s  “Hard Chance: Tree Farming in troubled Times.”

Hundreds of independent bookstores across the country will be hosting local authors on Small Business Saturday, 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.
