Independent Bookstore Day 2018

Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with us on Saturday, April 28th. 

Independent Bookstore Day marks its fifth year of celebrating independent bookstores nationwide.

Square Books and Square Books, Jr. will offer giveaway items and exclusive day-of merchandise created especially for Independent Bookstore Day by major publishers and authors. Square Books, Jr. will also host a special Llama Llama storytime at 10 a.m.

We're giving all our customers free audiobooks to say thank you for supporting our bookstore. The audiobooks are available through our partner, Visit the store on Saturday and we'll sign you up.

Since its inception in 2014, more than 150 authors, including Neil Gaiman, George Saunders, Roxane Gay, Lauren Groff, James Patterson, Stephen King and many others, have demonstrated their support for independent bookstores by donating work for Bookstore Day. These limited edition, unique items will be available only at participating IBD bookstores, on April 28. Not before. Not online. And not in chain stores.
