Autumn has arrived in Arizona! Though our diversity shines from Ponderosa Pine country to the Chiricahua Mountains, Arizona’s awesome local businesses are a common thread. This November, Bookmans celebrates homegrown Arizona commerce and community. Statewide non-profit organization, Local First AZ shows that just a 10% shift from corporate chains to locally-owned businesses creates millions in economic activity, adds hundreds of new jobs and provides higher wages for workers in our communities. Even better, don’t miss this opportunity to sharpen your local-vore knowledge while you shop! Join Bookmans this month for a veritable cornucopia of fun events. Each store hosts free activities to inspire awareness of Arizona non-profits, shops, restaurants and other businesses. Stop by every location for local-themed events that help make our neighborhood better. From the Arizona Fall Fest to local business fairs, discover what treasures exist in our Grand Canyon State.


Celebrate National Novel Writing Month with fun activities at Bookmans East! Also at East, gather with your family for a little inner peace at Parent Child Yoga.

Go behind the scenes at Bookmans Midtown with the Backroom Bookclub and be part of an exclusive group of readers in the back room of Bookmans at this brand new event! Join Midtown in supporting local adoptable animals at the Give Local Pet Fair too!

All year long, Bookmans works with our friends at Local First Arizona to support the awesomeness of Arizona-owned businesses. Bookmans also highlights ways that organizations, including schools, animal rescues, literary groups, musicians, and artists, make Arizona great. Together, we support and strengthen communities and local economies through growing and celebrating locally-owned businesses throughout the state. Working for a common goal, we showcase unique ways to shop and give locally. Be sure to visit our Events Calendar to find out what’s happening in your neighborhood.
