After three years and 143 episodes, we’ve reached our goal of featuring a bookstore in every US state, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico on the Authors Love Bookstores program. We’ve also been fortunate to highlight bookstores in the United Kingdom and Canada. Our list of US-based bookstores is featured below. Hope you’ll enjoy watching one — or more! — of our episodes!

On Authors Love Bookstores, we host a conversation between an author and their favorite booksellers, with the goal of highlighting the important roles indie bookstores play in our communities, while also promoting the author’s work. The show, which is hosted by me and Joe Moldover, debuted on A Mighty Blaze on April 29, 2020.
