The Localist Author Visit April 4

April 4, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Shop Local is a popular mantra these days – and there are a lot of great reasons to support your local businesses – just ask author and entrepreneur, Carrie Rollwagen who will be visiting The Book Garden in Frenchtown on Saturday, April 4 to discuss her book, The Localist.

Carrie Rollwagen decided to give up corporate shopping and instead shop local-only for an entire year. This is her story of learning not just how to shop local, but what it means to shop local. She knew that she’d have to learn how to shop local, that she’d discover new indie businesses, and that she’d need to rehab her shopping habits. What she didn’t know is that she’d save money, connect with her community, and learn to love those indie businesses. She also didn’t know that, before her buy-local year was over, she’d be the owner of her own independent business, a community coffee shop and indie bookstore in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Book Garden in Frenchtown welcomes author and entrepreneur, Carrie Rollwagen for a book signing and discussion on Saturday, April 4th at 6:30pm. Come out and support a fellow indie bookstore owner and hear why shopping local matters on so many levels! Carrie Rollwagen will be at The Book Garden in Frenchtown, NJ on Saturday, April 4th at 6:30pm.
