Bookmans Phoenix will also be hosting a FREE screening of the documentary Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist at the FilmBar on March 7!

Spring Break? We’ve Got You Covered!

Spring Break doesn’t have to be boring for the kids. Bookmans stores have tons of fun in store to keep kids entertained all week long.  Join Bookmans Mesa for a whole lot of crafty fun with their Spring Break Soiree events on March 12, 13, 14, and 15! Midtown always has packed Kids Movie and Craft Nights, and this month they will tackle How to Train Your Dragon and have a dragon-themed craft too. Northwest’s Spring Break Storytime + Craftapalooza is a great way to enjoy a good story and make something fun to take home. If you’re down for a movie week, Bookmans East is having a Spring Break movie marathon. These movie events include a crafting session too! Up in Phoenix,  Bookmans is running their Camp Bookmans: Spring Break, and it’s going to be a whole lot of fun!

If you’re staying in town up in Flagstaff and you’re too old for kids movies and crafts, join the NAU Tabletop Club on March 5 and 19 for some Dungeons & Dragons gameplay. If you’re looking for a good campaign, either of these classes will be a great adventure. 


Calling all superheroes! Don’t miss the annual family fun at the Ka-Pow! Superhero Adventure Run at Freestone Park! Come on by the Bookmans table and grab a free comic book!
