What do writers do when they aren’t writing? They hangout out at bookshops. Join local authors this Saturday from 10 to 4 p.m. at Maria’s Bookshop, 960 Main Ave. in Durango.
Booknerdin’ will abound as inkslingers recommend their favorite authors and books to the public. If you end up liking what you hear, any book bought by a local author’s rec will be 15 percent off.
Bonus: You can get a free audiobook download from Libro.fm.
