Independent Bookstore Day!
The Book Cellar, Saturday, May 2 at 10am
Saturday, May 2nd is Independent Bookstore Day!

Celebrate Independent bookstores (with over 400--and counting!--bookstores participating nationally) this May 2nd! The Book Cellar's own Claire Anderson-Ramos designed the logo for this natonal event (see above!), so we're feeling a little bit famous.

This Independent Bookstore Day, we'll be hosting a Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar with CELEBRITY BAR TENDERS David MacLean (The Answer to the Riddle is Me) and Samantha Irby (Meaty) from 11am to 1pm. We'll be giving away fun (and literary) prizes in an HOURLY RAFFLE, and if that's not enough---there will be CAKE!

To encourage Chicago readers to visit not only their own neighborhood bookstore but also the many other unique independent book stores in Chicago, author Stuart Dybek and illustrator Dimitry Samarov have teamed up to create a specia, previously unreleasedl illustrated chapbook that you can collect page-by-page at each of the twelve participating stores. 57th Street Books, The Book Cellar, City Lit Books, Open Books River North, Open Books Pilsen, Powell’s Bookstore University Village, Roscoe Books, Sandmeyer’s Bookstore, Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Unabridged Bookstore, Uncharted Books, and Women & Children First.

From a press release from Chicago Independent Bookstore Day:

The first National Independent Bookstore is sponsored in part by Penguin Random House and The American Booksellers Association. “It's a privilege for Penguin Random House to be the first publisher sponsor of Independent Bookstore Day, and we are excited about supporting it in a variety of ways, including author appearances and specially created merchandise that celebrates the event,” said Jaci Updike, President, Sales of Penguin Random House U.S. “California Bookstore Day was a tremendous success for our booksellers, their customers, and for us last year, and we’re looking forward to working with booksellers all across the country to grow this terrific event in their communities—it’s a fantastic and festive way to bring new readers into bookstores, and to strengthen relationships with existing customers.”

“The entire purpose of Bookstore Day is to celebrate our collective success and thank our customers and the community of readers,” says IBD Program Director, Samantha Schoech. “For so long, the message about indie bookstores was all doom and gloom, but the truth is, there are more indie bookstores this year than last, and more last year than the year before that. Independent bookstores are actually opening around the country. We want people to know that.”

For more information, call our store at 773.293.2665 or visit http://www.chicagobookstoreday.com/ . See you May 2nd!
