Independent Bookstore Day first originated in California. It was such a success that an intrepid team of book folk out there spread it to the rest of the country!
Now IBD is celebrated nation wide on the last Saturday of April.
Regions (like Metro Boston) have begun to branch out and make it their own. Creating bookstore passports, special merchandise, and more!
Independent Bookstore Day is one big nation wide celebration of local indie bookstores and BOOKS!
