Independent Bookstore Day 2018

Independent Bookstore Day 2018 is a national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country. In addition to authors and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Independent bookstores are community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. Support your local community by shopping where you live and talk to real people about books they know and love. The Bookworm welcomes the following authors to help us celebrate Independent Bookstore Day:

11 a.m. | Henry Cordes, the author, and Matt Haney, the illustrator, will sign The Return of Scott Frost (Omaha World-Herald, $4.99). From the pages of the Omaha World-Herald comes a special comic book edition of the six-part series detailing Scott Frost’s return to coach Nebraska football. From the fallout of Nebraska’s loss to Northern Illinois to the role new athletic director Bill Moos, Frost teammate Matt Davison and former coach Tom Osborne played in luring him back, World-Herald reporter Henry Cordes and illustrator Matt Haney highlight it all in this glossy, 24-page book.

1 p.m. | Tim and Lisa Trudell will sign 100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die ($16.00). Omaha is often called the best-kept secret in the United States. Omaha has much to offer, from history, hiking, and an exciting local beer scene to great food. We take you on a tour of the city's unique and interesting sites and include some fun facts and helpful tips. During our travels, we'll share where to take on the challenge of eating a six-patty burger with all the toppings, where to find the home of blown glass art, and where to see some of the fastest planes in the world. 100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die travels around Omaha to reveal the beauty and diversity of a growing city. Whether you grew up in Omaha or are just passing through, this book will make you stop and say, "I didn't realize that was in Omaha." 

2 p.m. | T. E. Furby will sign Life with a Twist: Poems Worth Smiling About ($15.00). When was the last time you read poetry that made you smile or laugh? Tom Furby displays a knack for presenting what might be normal everyday occurrences in a way that catches you off-guard and makes you smile. He is disarmingly honest and a keen observer of life. The themes vary and include, travel, aging, time on his uncle's farm with his brothers, and everything life may throw your way. Pick up this book and add a little sunshine to your day.
