One day. Hundreds of bookstores. Fifty states. Join the celebration!

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. Nowhere else.

Join us for this annual event where over 600 independent bookstores nationwide will be offering special events, discounts, one-of-a-kind book lovers memorabilia, and where you can meet your favorite authors in virtual and in-person activities.

Arts & Letters Bookstore will be featuring discounts and prizes throughout the day. We will be having a virtual live Q&A session and a book signing with author Dr. Sidney Thompson, author of “Hell On The Border” and “Follow The Angels, Follow The Doves” of the Bass Reeves Trilogy. Online Q&A session begins at 1:00p and book signing will be in-store at 2:30p.
