Independent Bookstore Day on 9th Ave.


Join us at Books on the Park on Saturday, April 29th for a celebration of Independent Bookstore Day!

Besides selling a handful of very limited edition items—available only at indie bookstores—we'll also be holding a variety of in-store events that day, with Michael Chabon stopping by in the evening to cap things off. Our celebrations will include the below activities throughout the day...

—Our inaugural Literacy & Language Center Children's Story Hour at 11:00

Bad Book Trivia at 3:00! Test your unashamed bad book knowledge with us for a chance to win some bad book prizes. 

Michael Chabon joins us at 7:00 to read from his new novel, Moonglow. The classic arcade game Moon Patrol will also be available to play!

And going on all day...

Free Beer! ALL DAY. Did we mention FREE BEER? Sponsored by Boulevard Brewing Company.

Raffle on the Hour. We'll be giving away a variety of cool bookstore swag: tote bags, galleys, gift cards, etc.

Blind Date with a Book! Need we say more? 

Roaming Photo Booth. Watch out! 

Books from the Future. How'd they get here? Who cares! They could be yours.
