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. Just like Bookmans, every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. And as you know, Bookmans is more than a book store, we are a celebration of all things community! To celebrate we’ve put together a day of book-loving events and giveaways for you! Not only that, but you will be able to shop for Exclusive IBD merchandise. Keep an eye out on our Instagram and Twitter pages for sneak peeks of what we’ll have for sale!

2 PM Drag Story Hour AZ
4:00 PM Taking on the World with Poetry Virtual Workshop
Are you ready to take on the big issues, but writing poems about them feels SO HARD? Join award-winning poet, Joy Young, as we hone in on an important topic you’d like to write about and use word webs as a stepping stone to creating a poem that creatively takes on the world and gives one answer to the question: how did that poet even think of that line?!
Joy Young is a performance and teaching spoken word artist based in Phoenix, Az. Their works has been featured on Button Poetry and Everyday Feminism as well as on stages and in colleges and classrooms across the country. They are also the co-founder and editor of Prickly Pear Printing.
