Publisher Harper Collins held recently held “The Graveyard Book Halloween Party Contest” in which independent bookstores would hold a in-store Halloween party using author Neil Gaiman’s novel The Graveyard Book as the theme. The results have just been announced and Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe was selected as one of the five first place finishers. They just missed out on winning the grand prize, consisting of a visit and signing by best-selling writer Neil Gaiman.
But all is not lost! By winning first prize, they’ll be receiving five signed copies of The Graveyard Book and a customized video greeting from Gaiman himself. Very impressive! It just goes to show you the wonders and importance of independent booksellers, so be sure to support your local indy bookstore!
