Saturday, May 3 :: California Bookstore Day!
Friends! Neighbors! Readerfolks! Lend us your Saturday afternoon!
Join us on Saturday, May 3 for the first-ever CALIFORNIA BOOKSTORE DAY, an annual celebration of indie bookstores across the state.
In addition to one-of-a-kind limited edition art and books* that you can only get on CBD (and only by coming into the store; no web orders, no email orders, no phone orders!), you also get to join in on a culture - no, a celebration -- no -- a MOVEMENT of indies, and the writers, booksellers, and readers who would be lost without us.
To mark the occasion, Amy (our social maven) and our awesome booksellers are taking over the back deck at Sparrow Bar next door. Buy one (or more) of 11 CBD items at Booksmith and get free admission at Sparrow, and a glass of wine on us.
The party is from 3:30 to 4:30, but get there early, because space is limited. And if you can't make it, don't despair, because the special CBD books and art will be available all day long, right here at Booksmith. Well, for as long as they last.
We'll see you here. And there.
