Independent Bookstore Day is Saturday, April 27, 2019. Founded and run by the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association, Independent Bookstore Day is a national celebration of independent booksellers that takes place the last Saturday in April. Each store participates in its own way with prizes, discounts, and fun in-store events. Independent booksellers are local anchors that provide a place of gathering, learning, and community involvement. This annual celebration is a great way for patrons to support and show how much they appreciate their local booksellers.
This year, Rain Taxi is partnering with the Twin Cities Literary Calendar, along with 19 independent booksellers, to create the 2019 Twin Cities Independent Booksellers Passport. Pick up your passport at any participating locations and collect stamps to activate coupons and enter contests for a chance to win prizes.
