Independent Bookstore Day, Rediscovered Bookshop

Saturday, May 2


Though it was signed nearly 240 years ago, the Declaration of Independence laid the foundation upon which many have built their version of the American Dream—and "independence" is still an important precept, especially for small-business owners. In April we celebrated independent record stores and, for the first time, on Saturday, May 2, another stronghold vital to our community gets its day.

For Independent Bookstore Day, Rediscovered Bookshop will serve as the local HQ for this national bookstore bash, with everything from exclusive books, art and T-shirts to readings and signings with Stan Steiner, Joanne Pence, Elisabeth Sharp McKetta, Diane Raptosh and Christian Winn.
