California Bookstore Day


Saturday, May 3, is California Bookstore Day when 93 independent bookstores throughout the state celebrate the written word.

In my area, I’ll be visiting Hicklebee’s where author Emily Jiang and illustrator April Chu will be celebrating their debut book Summoning the Phoenix: Poems & Prose About Chinese Musical Instruments. From 3:00 to 5:00 pm, Emily and April will be signing books as well as demonstrating how to play certain Chinese instruments among other activities. Refreshments will be served.

Other author appearances that day include children’s author Megan McDonald who is the author of the popular Judy Moody series. She will be at Hicklebee’s from noon to 1:30 pm.

Illustrator Katherine Tillotson, who illustrated Megan McDonald’s Shoe Dog is scheduled from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.

In Santa Cruz, Logos Books & Records and Bookshop Santa Cruz are participating in California Bookstore Day.

Be sure to visit and support your local independent bookstores—Saturday and always!

    That is the most adorable little logo ever. I almost wish I still lived in Cali, just to take part in such an event! Oh well, there in spirit. 😉 Hope you had lots of fun!

      Thanks, Alex. It is cute. 🙂 I think it’s such a great idea to celebrate and support our indie bookstores! I’m not sure if other states do this.

  2. What a wonderful idea-a Bookstore Day. Thanks for sharing, Linda.
