Independent Bookstore Day & Latin Club This Saturday!

This coming weekend will leave a couple of impressions, it's that epic! On the national front, April 28th is Independent Bookstore Day!

This is Kids Ink's 32nd year in business, so it's only right to join with the country in celebrating the magic and adventure local tome-peddlers bring each and every day. We'll have a few onesies, plushies, and other reading accessories for sale along with bookmarks and other goodies to give away. Visit IBD's own website for more about its history and how other stores are marking the occasion.

Did you know the concept of a spoken word album is thousands of years old? To learn what we're talking about, come check out North Central High School's Latin Club recite one of the earliest sung narratives: Vergil's Aeneid.

Since 2009, North Central's Latin Club delivered one of the classic Roman epics in front of a crowd, partially for practice but more as a fundraiser to support their War on Poverty. This year's goal is to raise $10,000 for the Shepard Community Center. Please stop by and experience one of the first group storytelling narratives and perhaps contribute to a truly noble cause. More information can be found here: If you don't have the time to read it, there's a great video they made that would make Homer proud at

The following Wednesday (May 2nd) kicks off another Story Time series, and this week's sessions features special guest Madeline visiting all the way from France!

In particular, Reading Without Walls highlights the need for kids to learn about stories and characters from different perspectives or backgrounds, and generating that flash of wonder and excitement that comes when the mind realizes whole new possibilities. Kids Ink will host a scavenger hunt guaranteed to send participants all around the world (in our shop), with prizes at the end and reading segments all throughout.
