Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day at Writer’s Block Bookstore on Saturday, April 27!
Winter Park, FL. Independent Bookstore Day marks its fifth year of celebrating independent bookstores nationwide on Saturday, April 27th, with literary parties around the country. Writer’s Block Bookstore will also offer exclusive day-of merchandise created especially for Independent Bookstore Day by major publishers and authors. Since its inception in 2014, more than 200 authors have demonstrated their support for independent bookstores by donating work for Bookstore Day. Join more than 550 independent bookstores in 49 states for parties, author readings, in-store events, and exclusive day-of merchandise. These limited edition, unique items will be available only at participating IBD bookstores, on April 27. Not before. Not online. And not in chain stores.
The 2019 IBD author ambassador Tayari Jones says, “Indie stores stock books by hand and sell them the same way. They know what we want and need to read because they know us, as people. A writer is not a machine. A reader is not an app. We are human beings and so are the independent bookstore workers who show up each day and place books in our hands.”
