Independent Bookstore Day on Clement


Green Apple Books on Clement Street will be doing lots of fun stuff throughout the day, and there will also be a range of unique book-related items and prints for sale ONLY on that day


Join us on Saturday, April 29th to celebrate! Here are just a few of the details we have planned for you to look forward to: 


Beginning at 10:30 am -- Silent Book Club will be pouring free mimosas! Introvert-friendly coasters available!




11:00 am -- Join local author/musician/donut lover/raconteur Eli Meyskens and local illustrator/former kids' book section wizard extraordinaire Ashley Despain for a morning of storytime and drawing instruction! Eli will read from his book The Lonely Bridge while Ashley teaches you how to draw one!



11:30 am to 1:30 pm -- Perennial favorite Silvi the Poet will be on hand typing up and passing out complimentary poems by request. Tips are appreciated for these beautiful custom pieces of art; perfect for gifts (Mother's Day is on May 14th, hint hint)!

6:00 pm to 7:00 pm -- San Francisco Chronicle reporter and author of High Spirits JK Dineen will be joining us for an evening of cocktails and conversation. Bring your valid ID to join the fun!




-- Oh, and did we mention there will be free beer? Because there will be free beer (from a local brewer, of course).
