Independent Bookstore Day: Celebrate Locally on May 2!

independent bookstore dayLast year’s California Bookstore Day has expanded into a nationwide event now called Independent Bookstore Day! As a city where the independent bookstore is still very much alive – San Diego is home to several, check out our independent bookstore guide – it’s safe to say we take our books pretty seriously.

The main attraction will be the books available for purchase that you won’t (and can’t) get on any other day; but there will also be readings, prizes, and food. While you’re in the area, check out DG Wills at 7461 Girard Avenue; it’s one of the oldest bookstores in the county and definitely one of the most unique!

Our very own Warwick’s in La Jolla has released an impressive list of the items that will be available exclusively in-store on May 2. Here are some of our favorites.

Margaret Atwood’s Bad Citizen stencil

Suitable for use as a stencil or as a stand-alone art piece, this year’s stencil quotes Margaret Atwood’s poem “Spelling.”

Finders Keepers Stephen King broadsideindependent bookstore day

This color broadside from Stephen King’s forthcoming novel, Finders Keepers, is a love letter to passionate readers, written in King’s own hand!
