Bookstore Day 2024

Saturday, April 27, 2024 - 11:00am to 7:00pm



Book babes, we'll be here. Let's be real, every day is a perfect day to support indie bookstores but Saturday, April 27 is the day of all days. It's festive, it's fun, it's sort of a party. We'll be here slinging books, making great recommendations, offering exclusive swag and special festivities.

First up, Booksmith store bingo, all day from 11-7, with discounts and prices for five-in-a-rows and blackouts. Get a bingo card, which is also a large chic postcard to send to a friend, to play when you visit. (We'll have cards to give away at the shop, but feel free to take a sneak peek below if you prefer to strategize in advance!)

We'll also have a table for tarot readings by JesseJae, and live music from Flora ElmColone. Stop by, have a listen, and see what the cards have in store.

Also: this year, we're excited to be a stop on the Bike to Bookstores tour, with big thanks to the SF Bike Coalition

Also also: as a little bonus thank you, wear your Booksmith shirt for 10% off your purchase!

Then there's all the other things we always love to do: thoughtful, custom recommendations of things you won't hear about anywhere else, sunny day bops, a beautiful neighborhood bookshop, and yet one more reason to come visit the Alembic bar next door and sample their incredible seasonal spring menu (we've tasted it all ... a few times).

Come on out, read like you mean it. We'll see you there!
