INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY - Last Saturday in April

INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY

On the last Saturday in April, Independent Bookstore Day brings together the celebration of classics, entrepreneurship and the joy of browsing through aisles of books.

Make your way down to your locally owned bookstore where the shop owner knows your interests. Chat with other bibliophiles over collections or discover a new favorite. Introduce nieces and nephews to your childhood favorites and let them wow you with their knowledge of the latest trilogies. Get lost in biographies or historical fiction while debating the value of a mint condition cookbook from the 1860s.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Independent bookstores offer a peaceful place and a community often filled with local authors and voices who share stories. Visit your local independent bookstore and discover more for your imagination.  Use #IndependentBookstoreDay to share on social media.
