Here's the breakdown for this national celebration of local booksellers!

Friday, April 28th

4:00—5:00  Cammie McGovern will discuss and sign her newest book, Chester and Gus, about the connection between an autistic boy and a dog. 

Saturday, April 29th

10:00—6:00   Random discounts throughout the store!  Perhaps you can get the big piece of Playmobil you’ve been wanting.

10:00—6:00   North Central Latin Club will be reading the entire Aeneid in our mock Roman setting.

10:00—6:00   Enter a raffle to win a gift basket! We’re teaming up with Bookmamas and the Indiana Historical Society – the more stores you visit, the bigger the prize!

10:00—12:00   Make a sock puppet and try out the puppet theater.

1:00—3:00   Authors Laura Martin (Edge of Extinction) and Mike Mullin (Ashfall trilogy) will be signing books and helping with a survival workshop. Try your hand at making a compass, filtering water, doing emergency first aid, tying knots, and reading maps.  These skills are life-saving in the books of Mullin and Martin.  Prizes will be awarded.

 

Note: We’d originally announced Jim Aylesworth as a guest for April 29th. This was an error, and later marketing included the correct date of April 22nd. If you were expecting to meet him during Independent Bookstore Day, we apologize for the miscommunication. We will have a selection of autographed books of his available.
