Independent Bookstore Day 2020: Online Edition!

 

Normally celebrated on the last Saturday of April, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that affected so many in our industry, Independent Bookstore Day happened on the last Saturday in August. In order to keep our beloved community members safe, we went mostly virtual! There were online events, and some of our Independent Bookstore Day merchandise is still available through our online store. See below.

 

 

Independent Bookstore Day is proud to announce a selection of exclusive books and art pieces for Bookstore Day 2020. These limited edition, unique items will be available at participating IBD bookstores and on the websites beginning August 29th. And when they’re gone, they’re gone.

We have a couple of items that are available to purchase in-store only:


Exclusive Shuri: A Black Panther Exclusive Print signed by Nic Stone.
A print from the original, upper-middle-grade novel (debuting May 5, 2020) starring the break-out character from the Black Panther comics and films: T'Challa's younger sister, Shuri. Crafted by New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone. Shuri is a skilled martial artist, a genius, and a master of science and technology. But, she's also a teenager. And a princess. This story follows Shuri as she sets out on a quest to save her homeland of Wakanda.

 

"Ways to Make Sunshine:" Signed edition with letter from the author
Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Author Award winner Renée Watson writes her own version of Ramona Quimby, one starring a Black girl and her family, in this start to a charming new middle grade series about spirit, kindness, and sunshine.
Ryan Hart is all about trying to see the best in people, to be a good daughter, a good sister, a good friend. But even if her life isn't everything she would wish for, when her big brother is infuriating, her parents don't quite understand, and the unexpected happens, she always finds a way forward, with grace and wit. And plenty of sunshine.

There are also some fun free items available in-store only!
