Celebrate Indie Bookstore Day!

April 29, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Independent Bookstore Day marks its third year of celebrating independent bookstores nationwide on Saturday, April 29th, with literary parties around the country.

Join us for fun and festivities throughout the day:
11:30am: all-ages children’s puppet show with Felicia Cooper and story hour with Bookseller Jen.

1:00 – 3:00pm: Book signing with City of Asylum Exiled Writer-In-Residence Osama Alomar

1:00pm & 2:00pm: Tours of our Alphabet City building

Plus, a scavenger hunt for kids, raffles and door prizes, surprise discounts, coffee and snacks.

Independent Bookstore Day is proud to announce a selection of exclusive books and art pieces for Bookstore Day 2017. These limited edition, unique items will be available only at participating IBD bookstores, on April 29. Not before. Not online. And not in chain stores. We are thrilled to offer:

– an exclusive, limited edition chapbook by Michael Chabon
– The “Bad Citizen” stencil with a quote by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
– Signed artwork by Oliver Jeffers and Jenny Lawson
