We Love Our Indies! - Indie Bookstore Day (April 29th)

WOOOOO You know what Saturday is? Ok, besides YallWest...

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. 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.

You all know we have THE BEST indies in the world here in the Bay Area and it pains us to be away from them (BUT for all you YW attendees...There will be indie presence at the festival so check it out) so we thought we'd share them and some of the YA related fun they're doing.

All of the participating stores have special things happening...Including the most awesome surprise ever.

A few years back, Rainbow released Kindred Spirits, a special novella for World Book Day. Unfortunately it was only available in the UK, leaving the US fans hungry for this story. Oh, and did I mention it's a geeky story set outside a movie theater on the release day for the latest Star Wars movie. Yes, I've read it. Yes, it's ADORABLE. So get out to your indie early because they only have around a dozen copies each!

With that, here are two of our favorite indies and their special YA celebrations!

Let us know if you get a copy of Kindred Spirits or if your indie is doing something special!

  1. We are lucky to live in the SF Bay Area with a plethora of Indie book stores in our reach. Too bad we missed this, but for a good reason.
