Join us for a day celebrating Indie Bookstores and our community!

All day long we’ll have raffles, treats, and special events to party in style.

Then at 7pm we’re luxuriating in the Reading Room for Literary Cocktails with Chantal Tseng centered on The Lost Children Archive by Valery Luiselli.

PLUS! We’ll be launhing our new LOYALTY membership program! PLUS! You can enjoy sister discounts at Lulabelle’s, Willow, and Petworth Citizen right here on Upshur Street all day long. PLUS! We’re participating in the DC Indie Bookstore Day Crawl so make a day of it and win awesome prizes for spending your day at cool bookstores. PLUS!
