On June 30th at 3pm, Arianne Zwartjes and Aisha Sabatini Sloan will be reading at Bookworks, one of Albuquerque’s last remaining independent bookstores. Bookworks states on its website: “Before indie was cool or hip, we were indie.” I believe the current term in youth vernacular for what Bookworks is is “sick,” but who can keep track.
