Independent Bookstore Day

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. 

Plus, the one and only DogMan will be at Wild Rumpus from 1:30-2:30PM to help us celebrate! Come shake Dog Man's paw and take a selfie with everyone's favorite crime-biting hero!

  • ​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 28, 2018.
