Each store will draw a winner to receive 20% of all purchases for a year. Some restrictions apply.

What is Independent Bookstore Day? 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! There are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online. Why celebrate independent bookstores? 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. Come get your indie on!
