Indie Bookstores Get Cat Mascot With Seattle Connection

The American Booksellers Assocation recently introduced “Stacks,” its brand new bookstore cat mascot! The name was the brainchild (kitten?) of James Crossley, manager of Seattle’s Madison Books, in teamwork with his daughter.

Stacks’ first task will be to walk independent bookstores through ABA’s “Good books come to those who shop early” Fall Marketing assets to encourage shoppers to support their local bookstore. Thanks to Pacific Northwest Bookseller Association for the cute kitty story.
