On Friday, January 15, the Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) catalog of exclusive, literary-themed merchandise will go live for booksellers to browse and place orders.
This year’s exclusives include books by Stephen King, Nikki Giovanni, Jeff VanderMeer, Kawai Strong Washburn, Nigella Lawson, and many more. Booksellers must place their orders by Friday, February 5, using the online order form on the newly updated Bookstore Day website.
It is not necessary to order exclusive merchandise in order to participate in Independent Bookstore Day, which will be held April 24. However, stores that wish to participate must sign up to do so and must agree to celebrate in-store and/or online on Bookstore Day.
Sign up to participate using the order form to ensure your store receives all IBD information and marketing materials, and is included on the searchable map.
Booksellers with questions can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
