Independent Bookstore Day
More than 400 independent bookstores across the nation are planning exciting celebrations for Independent Bookstore Day, which will be held this year on April 29. We hope you'll join us at The Odyssey for our celebration!
Why celebrate independent bookstores?
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. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.
