California Bookstore Day, on Saturday May 3, 2014, is a project of the Northern and Southern California Independent Booksellers Associations, representing more than 300 bookstores. This is an in-store celebration -- join us in either location to take part!
We believe indie bookstores are an essential part of lively communities, the free-flow of ideas, and the thrill of discovery.
CBD will harness the creative power of authors and publishers in a giant celebration of the written word that will drive readers to brick-and-mortar bookstores. For one day, and one day only, a number of very limited-edition, unique, word-based items and books will be available in more than 100 independent stores across the state. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill signed first editions—these are literature-based art projects, unique books, and collector’s items created for this event only.

Some lucky CBD reader will acquire a reading bear!

Join the party! It’s happening here. Throughout California ninety-three bookstores are promoting thirteen books and art pieces that have been specially published and produced for this special day. There will be no pre-sales allowed. Check out these one of a kind finds at cabookstoreday.com. The day will feature the Write Out Loud crew who will do dramatic readings from prestigious California authors, such as Ray Bradbury, Dr. Seuss, and Raymond Chandler. In addition, Mysterious Galaxy will host an afternoon spotlight with Kimberly Derting (The Taking), Alyson Noël (Horizon), and Margaret Stohl (Icons), three great young adult authors who will discuss and sign their latest and share their appreciation of independent booksellers and what we bring to our communities!
