Independent Bookstore Day

Just what does IBD celebrate?

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.


In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism.  We are living, breathing organisms, and we are at your service.



This year, New York Times bestselling author Angie Thomas will serve as the 2022 spokesperson for Independent Bookstore Day!

IBD Presents: An Evening with Angie Thomas

On Wednesday, April 27 at 7:00 pm ET. Joining bookseller Melanie Knight from Books Inc in Alameda, California, our Independent Bookstore Day Ambassador, Angie Thomas, will chat live on Zoom about all things indies.

The event is free and open to the public with any donations going to the charity of Angie’s choice: We Need Diverse Books.

If Aiyana hears one more traditional Lakota story, she'll scream! More interested in her social media presence than her Native American heritage, Aiyana is shocked when she suddenly finds herself in the magical Spirit World-with no cell coverage! Pursued by the evil trickster Raven, Aiyana struggles to get back home, but is helped by friends and allies she meets along the way. Her dangerous journey through the Spirit World tests her fortitude and challenges her to embrace her Lakota roots. But will it be enough to defeat the cruel and powerful Raven? This Independent Bookstore Day Exclusive will include an exclusive poster with a poem by M. L. Smoker.
