Special Events this Sat. at Locally-Owned Bookstores Across the U.S.
April 21, 2021
Independent Bookstore Day, administered by the American Booksellers Association, takes place this Saturday, April 24. More than 740 stores are participating, according to Publisher's Weekly.
Some stores are open for customers (most of them with limited capacity, due to Covid-19) while others are planning outdoor events. Special activities will be held at many stores such as Moon Palace Books in Miinneapolis, which is sponsoring a "literary stroll" outside the store; Left Bank Books in St. Louis, where an outdoor dance party and open mic for young adults is scheduled; and Downtown Books in Manteo, NC, where children will be invited to participate in a "story walk" through the pages of a best-selling picture book to a local playground.
This is a great opportunity to support your local, family-owned bookshop.
All my best,
