Independent Bookstore Day

Three Indianapolis bookstores are teaming up to celebrate the day with literary parties.  On Saturday, April 29, guests of Bookmamas, the Indiana Historical Society's  Basile History Market, and Kid's Ink Children's Bookstore will be treated to free activities, book signings, discounts, and prizes.  In addition, those who visit multiple stores will be entered in a drawing to win one of two multi-store gift baskets. This is the third year for Independent Bookstore Day which shows support for indie bookstores nationwide by celebrating the work they do year round.  More than 490 bookstores in 48 states are taking part, with plans for a full day of bookish fun.

The Basile History Market is located at 450 W. Ohio St. inside the Eugene & Marilyn Glick History Center and Kid's Ink Children's Bookstore is located at 5619 N. Illinois St.
