Oakland- Independent Bookstore Day 2017!

Independent Bookstore Day April 30, 2016

Independent Bookstore Day returns with its third annual celebration! Bookstores are unique places in the chaos and hubbub of our modern times. They are places where you can come to disconnect, relax, and enjoy a moment of silence, yet simultaneously they are also places where you can feel more engaged with and informed about the world around you. Bookstores embody dichotomy: antiquated yet ever-more-relevant, sanctuaries of knowledge but purveyors of distraction, nerdy yet sophisticated, esoteric and yet always welcoming. Cities across the nation have seen the resurgence of these oh-so-vital centers of conscience and community, and we want to celebrate with you! So come out and enjoy a day of browsing, reading, and reveling in all things book-related. 

When is it? Saturday, April 29th, 2017

What's happening? Our featured item, specially printed for Independent Bookstore Day, will be A Literary Cocktail Party. The best part, Literary Happy Hour from 4-5pm!
