Independent bookstores are not just stores—they are 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.
Please come by to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with us and show your support for this amazing movement. We’ll have fun together along with stimulating activities all day long, special author visits by Irvin Mayfield presenting NEW ORLEANS PLAYHOUSE, Carrie Rollwagen discussing THE LOCALIST, and Sarah J. Maas reading A COURT OF THORNS & ROSES . And we are selling some exclusive literary-themed art and gift items you will want to have to remember this special day.
“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
