Independent Bookstore Day 2022

Saturday, 30 April 2022 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Independent Bookstore Day is BACK! This year, Wild Rumpus will be open for in-store browsing (masks are required!) and we will have unique, limited edition merchandise available only from indie bookstores, while supplies last. Plus, pick up a TC Indie Bookstore Passport between April 23-30 for a chance to win prizes and coupons while supporting local independent bookstores!

Sunday, April 23‒Saturday, April 30: Twin Cities Indie Bookstore Passport

Twin Cities Independent Booksellers are teaming up again this year to conduct a cities-wide TC Indie Bookstore Passport Contest. Readers who visit multiple stores between 4/23 and 4/30 will be eligible for fantastic, bookish prizes. If you would like a passport included with your online order, please mention it in the order notes!

How to Participate:

  1. Pick up a passport and activate the coupons between April 23 and April 30. Start your bookstore journey at any of the participating stores, including Wild Rumpus, and then get a stamp at every bookstore you visit through April 30. Each stamp activates that store’s coupon; just bring your passport back after May 1 to redeem the coupon!

  2. Get any 10 stamps, and you activate ALL store coupons. Collect stamps from any 10 bookstores and ask the tenth one to stamp a special page that activates all 19 coupons in the passport!

  3. Get all 19 stamps, and be entered to win a literary prize pack or the grand prize Collect stamps from all the bookstores and ask the last one to stamp the special square in the back of the Passport; you’ll then be eligible to win one of five literary prize packs, PLUS the grand prize! If you have obtained all 19 stamps, simply email a picture of the "Bookstore Hero Stamps" page to calendar [at] raintaxi [dot] com by end of day on Monday, May 2, or tear out and mail on Monday to Rain Taxi, PO Box 3840, Mpls MN 55403 with your email address included.
