Independent Bookstore Day looks a little bit different this year. While we had planned to celebrate virtually alongside more than 450 other bookstores nationwide on August 29th, the devastating Santa Cruz County wildfires and the need to care for our community took prirority. We are confident in the resilience and compassion of our community and have rescheduled Bookshop's celebration of Independent Bookstore Day for Saturday, September 26th.
