Saturday, April 28, is Independent Bookstore Day, and even though we like to think every day is a day to celebrate your friendly, local nonprofit bookstore, we hope you’ll come join us for our official day in the spotlight!
We’ve got a super-special special and a special event to help get you excited for the day, as well:
INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY SPECIAL: SPEND $30, GET A FREE ADVANCE READER COPY!
Get your hands on a book that isn’t even on the shelves yet! Spend $30 on new or used books (or both) and you’ll get your choice of one free advance reader copy. ARCs are unique editions of yet-to-be-released books, and we’re fortunate to have several on-hand for your next great read!
THE YOU GUYS SHOULD START A BOOK CLUB BOOK CLUB:
For our third #TheYGSSABCBookClub (it’ll be a thing) event, we’re reading Eve L. Ewing’s Electric Arches, an imaginative exploration of Black girlhood and womanhood through poetry, visual art, and narrative prose.
Blending stark realism with the surreal and fantastic, Eve L. Ewing’s narrative takes us from the streets of 1990s Chicago to an unspecified future, deftly navigating the boundaries of space, time, and reality. Ewing imagines familiar figures in magical circumstances―blues legend Koko Taylor is a tall-tale hero; LeBron James travels through time and encounters his teenage self. She identifies everyday objects―hair moisturizer, a spiral notebook―as precious icons.
We’ll gather to discuss this incredible book from 2-4 p.m. on Independent Bookstore Day — no RSVP required!
