Independent Book Store Day 2018

Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 9:00 am to 9:00 pm | Cost: FREE
San Francisco Bay Area |



Independent Book Store Day 2018

Independent Bookstore Day will take place at more than 400 bookstores nationwide. For one day, and one day only, limited, unique books and art pieces will be available in more than 400 independent stores across the country.

Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, live music, cupcakes, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, barbecues, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

The special items aren’t your run-of-the-mill signed first editions—these are literature-based art projects, unique books, and collector’s items created for this event only.
