Meet Chelsea Cain at our Independent Bookstore Day Party on Saturday, April 27th!!!
Call us crazy, but we love the idea of celebrating independent bookstores! Frankly, we think every day should be Independent Bookstore Day, but for now we look forward to taking part in this annual day of celebration.
We hope you can join us on Saturday, April 27th, as we join indie bookstores across the country in celebrating our independence and our vital role in the community. Now more than ever, bookstores can offer sanctuary, a place of learning, a place to gather, and a place of joy.
As in previous years, many publishers have created unique bookish items for sale just on this day. And we have very cool Indie Bookstore Day tote bags that you can get free with minimum purchase. Supplies of these items are limited, so come early!
But don't worry: even if you miss out on these items you can still take advantage of our very special Independent Bookstore Day sale: 20% off any hardcover books in the store -- novels, biographies, cookbooks, childrens' picture books -- anything you want!!!
And there's more! Spend $50 or more and you can spin the Magic Lottery Wheel of Giddiness for special prizes, including book bling, Broadway Books gift certificates, and Advance Reading Copies.
We're thrilled to welcome some special guests to the store at from 11 to 12: Chelsea Cain will be here to sign copies of Man-Eaters, Volume 1, a new book that collects Issues 1 - 4 of the Man-Eaters comic in a bound book! Chelsea -- who by the way is a HOOT -- will be joined by her Man-Eater co-conspirators Stella Greenvoss, Eliza Mohan, Emily Powell, and Lia Miternique. You just never know what will transpire when Chelsea is in the house, so be sure not to miss this!
Our very own Chris Miller will be performing music in the afternoon (about 1 to 3), and we'll have yummy cupcakes (Yay, St. Cupcake!) to keep you going all day long!
If you enjoy listening to audiobooks, be sure to sign up for an account at Libro.FM prior to Independent Bookstore Day and you'll be able to download free digital audiobooks on that day,
Please join us for this party to celebrate
independent bookstores across the nation!
"Consumers control the marketplace by deciding where to spend their money. If what a bookstore offers matters to you, then shop at a bookstore. If you feel that the experience of reading a book is valuable, then read the book. This is how we change the world: we grab hold of it. We change ourselves." (Ann Patchett, bestselling author and co-owner of Parnassus Books )
