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 indie store is unique, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, live music, snacks, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, barbecues, contests, and a lot of other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. This roundtable discussion is a chance for booksellers to share ideas and hear success stories from colleagues from across the country.
