It is so good to get out of the store for a day, talk shop, get new ideas, and find out how creative you've actually been when you share your ideas with others.We encourage you to send your staff so they may meet the other enthusiastic booksellers from your immediate area.

Independent Bookstore Day
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) is a celebration of books, readers and indie bookselling, modeled after the extremely successful Record Store Day. Stores are encouraged to create events, displays and invite authors to their store on April 29. To show their support for indies and help drive customers into your stores, publishers produce unique, limited-edition books and literary art pieces that are only available at participating bookstores on Bookstore Day.
We invite booksellers from all respective areas to join us for a night of drinks, friendship, and to help launch a new title.
