Walking tour of the store during Independent Bookstore Day. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!

UNCHAIN YOUR READING at Interabang in celebration of Independent Bookstore Day!


An annual celebration of independent bookstores across the country. Independent bookstores are centers of community life and literary culture, offering spaces to gather, share ideas, and promote open dialogue and empathy. We're a weekend getaway for your families; we're a town hall, an open venue for diverse voices; and we're a soundboard for incredible visiting authors. IBD is a chance to applaud what makes our communities fiercly independent!


Saturday, April 28th

All day Saturday we invite you to stop in, meet our staff, and talk with us about your favorite books. (We’re eager to tell you ours, too.) Have a look at our hand-picked selection of books and gifts for kids and adults. Chat with a bookseller. At an independent bookstore, you can tell the difference!

We have a special lineup of activities for the day, too:

Interabang Books T-shirts, free to shoppers from 10:00 (while supplies last; quantities are limited).

10:30am Story Time: All ages, join the “Mane Event!” as we introduce the kids to HENRY AND LEO by Pamela Zagarenski. Then we will make ourselves lion masks and manes (like Leo’s), do some coloring, and see who’s got the best roar. Cookies and juice complete the fun. For more lion-izing, we will also have on hand other favorite tales featuring the king of the jungle – a classic figure in fables and children’s literature.

Find out about our Signed First Editions Club, a new subscription program. Expect a fascinating mix of novels and nonfiction, from established, prize-winning authors as well as buzzed-about writers making their debuts – delivered monthly to your mailbox!

2:00pm Book Club Bash: Recommended reading of the best kind! Our buyer Lori Feathers will suggest some favorites for book clubs like yours to consider. Come with questions and stories of your book club’s previous favorites; leave with ideas for your next selection or two.

4:00pm Happy Hour: Cheers to books! We’ll serve complimentary beer, wine, and soft drink as you browse the store. Raise a glass to Independent Bookstore Day and keep talking to our booksellers about your favorites and theirs.

An Interabang Books ceramic mug or jumbo canvas tote is our gift to you with any $50 purchase (while supplies last)

ABOUT US: Interabang Books takes its name from the symbol that combines a question mark (an interrogative) and an exclamation point (a bang, in typesetting lingo). In suggesting the search for knowledge and the excitement of discovery, this punctuation mark conveys the spirit of our independent bookstore – and the sort of experience we want readers to have with their selections from Interabang Books. Our bookstore’s Grand Opening was September 2017.
