Independent Bookstore Day

Saturday, April 27, 10AM-5PM

Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with Wild Rumpus! We appreciate the love and support that we receive from YOU, our community and customers. Let's celebrate our partnership together!

We'll have fun giveaways, original books and items for sale that will only be available at independent bookstores, and we're taking care of some of our most precious employees: the furry animals! Join us at 1PM for our annual Vet Visit with Dr. Ali from All Paws Animal Hospital. 

But that's not all! Pick up a Twin Cities Bookstore Passport at Wild Rumpus or any of the other fabulous participating independent bookstores. Then collect stamps for each bookstore you visit on April 27 for coupons and prizes! See details below.


How to Participate:

  1. Pick up a passport on April 27 at any of the participating stores and get a stamp at every bookstore you visit that day. Each stamp activates that store’s coupon; just bring your passport back on a later date to redeem the coupon.
  2. Collect stamps from any 5 bookstores and ask the fifth one to stamp a special page that activates the entire coupon book — bring your passport back to any store on a later date to use your coupon!
  3. Collect stamps from any 10 bookstores on April 27, and you’ll be entered to win a literary prize pack, each chock full of new books and other great prizes! Just ask the tenth store to stamp your prize entry card in the back of the Passport.
  4. Get stamps from any 15 bookstores on April 27, and you'll be entered to win the the grand literary prize pack, which contains all the prizes in the literary prize pack above PLUS an additional 19 books chosen by our great independent bookstores! Just ask the fifteenth store to stamp your prize entry card in the back of the Passport.
  5. Get stamps from all 19 bookstores on April 27, and you'll receive a medal as an Independent Bookstore Champion, which will entitle you to a 20% discount at all of the participating stores until October 1, 2019.

​​When you’re finished visiting stores, just tear out the entry card and leave it with any bookseller before the end of the day for a chance to win. (Don’t turn in your entry card until you have reached your final destination.) Prize entry cards will only be accepted on April 27, 2019. A representative from Rain Taxi will notify the winners via e-mail and send your prizes within one week of Independent Bookstore Day. Thank you, and happy book hunting!
