#SaveIndieBookstores Raised $1,239,595
The #SaveIndieBookstores kicked off on April 2 with the support of James Patterson, the American Booksellers Association, and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) has ended and raised $1,239,595. More than 1,800 people contributed to the campaign. “This message of support from book lovers and from every sector of the book industry clearly demonstrates how deeply people value independent bookstores and the roles they hold in their communities,” said Binc Executive Director Pam French. “Everyone’s collective efforts mean that hundreds of indie bookshops across the country will be getting emergency disaster assistance that they would not otherwise have received. Thank you."
