Independent Bookstore Day 2018

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  In the past, we've taken this opportunity to host authors, book launches, and all manner of fun and unique activities, and this year is no exception!  Check out some of the highlights we've got planned:


Independent Bookstore Day Exclusives

Each year, there are exclusive books and literary items created specifically for independent bookstores.  These limited editions are created in extremely small quantities, and include signed and special editions, one-of-a-kind items, and more.  You won't find them anywhere else, and after Independent Bookstore Day, they'll be gone for good, but you can preview the list now!



Door Prizes and Giveaways

Independent Bookstore Day is all about celebrating what makes indies special, and that includes our amazing customers!  We'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you.  We've got some fun bookish giveaways, including 20th Anniversary Harry Potter patches.  Everyone who shops with us in store on Independent Bookstore Day also has the chance to be entered into drawings for some pretty amazing prizes, including our Grand Prize package!  


A Seuss-a-Bration!

This year's events include something special for our younger readers, and for Dr. Seuss fans of all ages: an Independent Bookstore Day Seuss-a-bration, featuring special Seuss-themed activities and even a photo booth!
