Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with #1 bestselling author Glennon Doyle in conversation with wellness author Alexandra Elle! 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 Rain, Neon Soul, and Today I Affirm: A Journal That Nurtures Self-Care.
