Independent Bookstore Day 2016

Started in California in 2014 and spread to the rest of the country in 2015 Independent Bookstore Day is a perfect time to show some love for your local indie. Please join us Saturday, April 30th, in Brooklyn and in Jersey City, to celebrate almost 10 years of independent bookselling. We have some exciting events lined up in both stores, as well as a ton of giveaways and, of course, limited quantities of exclusive IBD merchandise for sale!
