We wanted to give a special thanks to two people who worked hard and helped us make the crawl happen! 📚
First, to our website creator @brooksnaylor for designing a beautiful website and always making all the little changes we asked for.
📚
And second, we want to say thanks to our amazing poster designer @mayalamphier for absolutely killing it for the SECOND year in a row. We're so thankful to have you on our team.
📚
We can't imagine what we would have done without you both. Thanks so much for all that you did for the crawl! 📚💕
And our final indie shout out goes to Balcones Books! If you're looking for first editions or collectible hardbacks, this is the place for you!

Do you like books? Do you like crafts? Do you think it would be cool to bind or repair an old book? Check out our friends over at the Austin Book Arts Center! They're donating a $50 giftcard that will be added in to one of our prize packs, so one lucky winner will get to check out this super cool place!
📚
Because of their generosity, we wanted to help them out! ABAC is going to undergo a big location change sometime late 2018-early 2019, but they need some extra funds to do it! We can help them get there by going to Austin Classical Guitar Society spring concert on April 28th (a perfect way to end the bookstore crawl) at the AISD Performing Arts Center. For each person who mentions ABAC on the phone or in the notes field on the Austin Classical Guitar Society website, 100% of that ticket price will go to our friends at the Austin Books Arts Center! Help us keep local, independently owned bookish places in business!

Today's shout-out is a little different. Instead of shining a light on a participating bookstore, today we're focusing on a donor. Our friends over at American Short Fiction are donating 3 copies of their latest issue so each grand prize winner gets to take one home!
📚
American Short Fiction has been publishing amazing short stories  by powerful authors since 1991. They publish triannually and are based right here in Austin, TX. Give these local friends a look, who knows, you might even find your next favorite author. 😉
