Independent Bookstore Day 2020 CANCELLED

Due to the coronavirus threat, our April events have been cancelled. We will reschedule at a later date. 

Join us as we celebrate Independent Bookstore Day 2020! 

Independent Bookstore Day is 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. But in addition to special sales, free tote bags, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism.  They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.

More information to come.

Saturday, April 25, 2020 - 10:00am to 6:00pm
