8:30 AM Very Important Book Love Behind the Scenes Tour
Get an inside view of your favorite indie bookstore with our VIB (Very Important Book Lover) event. We’ll give you a tour of our basement and snack on some delicious treats and beverages. Plus, you’ll be privy to our exclusive Independent Bookstore Day merch, receive a discount exclusive to Bookmans employees, and hang out with other book nerds. *To participate in the VIB tour, you must enter for a spot here. Not all who enter will win as space is limited.
Starting at 1 PM Circuitous Vibes will be in the building creating amazing ambient music rich in tape looping, reverberation, arpeggiating, droning and phasing. This music conjures up a variety of textures and atmospheres, taking the listener on slowly moving and wandering journeys and is perfect for a day in your favorite independent book store!
Enjoy poetry? From 12 PM to 3 PM we’ll be showcasing local poets as a part of The Bookmans Poets Society Social with a keynote reading by Kenneth Randle Landers who will be reading from his book The Arizona Son and his newest release Black Honey (out April 12). Landers will also have copies of The Arizona Son available to signing and purchase.
6 PM to 8 PM Board Game Night with Isle of Games will round off the night. Learn any of the dozens of games provided by Isle of Games, bring your favorite game to teach somebody else, or borrow from our extensive collection.
