Event Details

The paint has dried, the awning is up, and Green Apple Books have filled the shelves (twice over it seems) of their new location in the Sunset at 1231 9th Street – Books on the Park. They’re throwing an all-day Grand Opening party on Saturday, October 25, 2014.

Here’s the tentative line-up, but get ready for possible other surprises, too:

  • Story time for the kids
    They’ll start the day reading some new children’s books, including the very funny Book With No Pictures by B.J Novak. Plus light snacks for little ones.
  • The first 25 kids (ten and under) to arrive will receive a voucher (worth up to $10) good for any kid’s book in the store, new or used.
  • 12 noon: Weird Book Raffle
    As the name implies, this is your chance to get your hands on Green Apple’s strange, eccentric, outlandish conversation pieces.
  • Books From the Future
    Throughout the day they’ll be giving away not-yet-published, advance reader copies of great upcoming books. Impress your friends by reading books unavailable to the rest of society.
  • Author Trivia
    What did Shakespeare leave his wife in his will? What’s Dr. Seuss’ real name? What does it all mean anyway?
  • The Roving Photobooth
    Everyone knows about Green Apple’s Staff Picks, but they wanna know about your favorite books. They’ll be taking Polaroid pictures of customers with their choices, and building a “Community Picks” display. Have your face and literary taste immortalized.
  • Kegs running throughout the day. What’s your favorite drinking game?
  • End of the Night Live Concerts
    • Rachel Toups will be opening with a lovely acoustic set
    • Local heroes Tino Drima will be playing them out
