MACOMB — Area authors and photographers will be presenting on Nov. 25 at New Copperfield’s Book Service, located at 120 North Side Square, in celebration of the eighth annual Small Business Saturday.
This year, Mary Haney, author of “Camp Ellis: Once a City — Not Forgotten” will be at New Copperfield's to meet readers and sign copies of her book. Randy Sollenberger, author of “My Guardian Angel and Beating the Reaper,” the CD "Spoon River Boys" and his most recent “Spoon River Country, Guardian Angels and Other Stories” will stop by. Bruce Morton, an award winning photographer who has exhibited in galleries and museums world-wide, author of the photography books “Forgottonia, Textile” and “Forgottonia: The Audience” will be appearing. The event is free and open to the public.
Small Business Saturday is a day to support the small businesses that can create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Small Business Saturday was created in 2010 in response to small business owners' most pressing need: more customers.
Small Business Saturday began as a cause to bring attention to what communities were losing when New Copperfield's Book Service started participating in the event several years ago. “Shop Small on Small Business Saturday” — the Saturday after Thanksgiving — has become a rallying cry for those who understand the importance of shopping locally to this community. Now, Macomb has rallied to support the unique, local businesses that give Macomb a local flavor found nowhere else.
New Copperfield's Book Service  carries a selection of general interest, children's books and educational toys, with special emphasis on local history, local music and local authors. For more information, contact the store at 309-837-3052.
