Independent Bookstore Day 2023!

April 29, 2023 • 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of Independent Bookstore Day with us all day on Saturday, April 29th from 10 am – 5 pm!

Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. In addition to fun in-store treats and deals (including some exclusive IBD merch), we’ll have the following fun activities:

New Orleans Passport Challenge Bookstore Crawl 

This year, the New Orleans Passport Challenge will take place over two weeks instead of just one day! One lucky reader will win a $25 gift card from each of the participating stores (that’s $175 total).

To enter, visit all 7 bookstores between April 29th and May 13th.

Each bookstore will add a unique stamp or sticker on your passport when you visit. No purchase is required to participate. Make sure your name and email address are included, and turn in your completed passport at whichever bookshop you visit last.
