The 2019 IBD author ambassador Tayari Jones says, “Indie stores stock books by hand and sell them the same way. They know what we want and need to read because they know us, as people. A writer is not a machine. A reader is not an app. We are human beings and so are the independent bookstore workers who show up each day and place books in our hands.”
Independent Bookstore Day is proud to announce a selection of exclusive books and art pieces for Bookstore Day 2019.These limited edition, unique items will be available only at participating IBD bookstores, on April 27.Not before. Not online. And not in chain stores.
