Independent Bookstore Day
Visit The Bookworm to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day, a national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country. 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 digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. And they are at your service. Consumers control the marketplace by deciding where to spend their money. If what a bookstore offers matters to you, then shop at a bookstore. If you feel that the experience of reading a book is valuable, then read the book. This is how we change the world: we grab hold of it. We change ourselves
Authors joining us for Independent Bookstore Day from 1 to 3 p.m. will be Ryan Roenfeld, author of Wicked Omaha (History Press, $21.99) and John Schreier, author of Carter Lake: A Slice of Iowa in Nebraska (History Press, $21.99).
