'Vibrant Bookseller Community Really Floored Me'
"I'm a huge fan of indies--my own local is Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, Mass.--so it's hard to pick between the many I've visited over the last few months. I'd hate to leave anyone out. Winter Institute was absolutely wonderful, though. It was my first publishing outing as a real author, and to find such an amazing and vibrant bookseller community really floored me."
--Victoria Aveyard, author of Red Queen (Harper Teen), in an Indies Introduce New Voices q&a with Bookselling This Week
