Trio of Top Author-Booksellers to Aid Binc
On July 23, bestselling authors Jeff Kinney, Ann Patchett, and Peter H. Reynolds—who all own their own bookstores—will be holding a three-way virtual panel discussion as a fundraiser for the Book Industry Charitable (Binc) Foundation.
Kinney, the author of the wildly popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, who opened his store, An Unlikely Story, in Plainville, Mass., in 2015, will be moderating the discussion. Ann Patchett, best known as a novelist, opened Parnassus Books in Nashville in 2011, while children’s book author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds opened the Blue Bunny Bookstore in his hometown of Dedham, Mass., in 2003.
Registration is open to the public through any one of the three bookstores’ facebook pages and websites. While there is no charge to attend, participants will be encouraged to make a donation to Binc at the close of the conversation.
