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. In addition to the party, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.
Coventry's favorite independent bookstore, Mac's Backs-Books on Coventry will have live music, booksignings, merchandise available only indie bookstores, raffles and snacks. Complete schedule coming soon! Go to the Mac's Backs website for schedule updates.
Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10:00am to 10:00pm
Address: Mac's Backs-Books on Coventry - 1820 Coventry Rd. Cleveland Heights, OH 44118
Why are we celebrating independent bookstores?
Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.
In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.
