Independent Bookstore Day 2016

Saturday, April 30, 2016 marks the second annual Independent Bookstore Day. This one-day-only event started out as the California Bookstore Day, going national in 2015. Initially 93 stores participated, but grew to 350.

Members of regional Independent Bookseller's Associations who operate a brick-and-mortar store are eligible to participate, selling IBD merchandise (tote bags, t-shirts, and so on). They also sell special or limited editions of books (for example The Neil Gaiman Coloring Book, Brandon Sanderson's The Stormlight Archive), all in the spirit of helping to strengthen and restore the tradition of independent bookstores.
