Independent Bookstore Day

Celebrate “Independent Bookstore Day” at your favorite local bookstore: Left Bank Books!


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, scavenger hunts, kids events, readings, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.


This year’s featured events include:

– Limited Edition Merchandise

– Free audiobooks through Libro.fm, available only on April 27! Sign up for your free Libro.fm account now.
