Bestselling author James Patterson announced on CBS This Morning that he will donate $1 million to independent bookstores over the next 12 months. Patterson, who was promoting his latest children’s book Treasure Hunters, plans to donate money to any “viable” independent bookseller; his only stipulation being that they have a children’s section.
