Glennon Doyle in conversation with Alexandra Elle is a celebration of Independent Bookstore Day, a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. In addition to authors, live music, scavenger hunts, kids’ events, readings, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Nowhere else. Discover participating independent bookstores by visiting the Independent Bookstore Day store map.

The 2021 Independent Bookstore Day author ambassador, Glennon Doyle, is an activist, the “patron saint of female empowerment” (People), and has always been a champion of independent bookstores. She is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Untamed, a Reese’s Book Club selection that has sold over two million copies; the #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior, an Oprah’s Book Club selection; and bestseller Carry On, Warrior.

Alexandra Elle is a writing to heal facilitator and the author of After the RainNeon Soul, and Today I Affirm: A Journal That Nurtures Self-Care. Writing came into her life by way of therapy and the exploration of healing through journaling. Alex teaches workshops and retreats assisting others in finding their voices through storytelling, poetry, and narrative writing rooted in truth without shame. She also hosts the hey, girl. podcast.
