Event Details

For 40+ years, Bookmans has been a proud Independent Bookstore. So this Saturday, April 27th we are celebrating National Independent Bookstore Day with a store-wide sale and an entire day filled with events, special merchandise, and prizes! IBD is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the United States on the last Saturday of April. Keep an eye out on our social media for updates on the upcoming sale and more!

Want to get an inside view of your favorite indie bookstore? Become a VIB (Very Important Book Lover) today! Enter today and we will choose a group of 15 lucky individuals to become an official Bookmans employee for the event. The lucky winners get early access to official IBD merchandise, a Bookmans VIB badge and lanyard, a special behind the scenes tour of Bookmans, and coffee and donuts on us! If you would like to enter to be a part of the VIB Tour event, fill out this questionnaire however, space is limited. We will contact you via e-mail if you are chosen!

Do you think you have what it takes to be a Bookmans Employee? After the tour, VIB members will play a game of Are You Smarter Than A Book Lover! How fast can you stock a bookshelf? Can you find a book in under three minutes? Compete and we will be awarding the first, second, and third place winners prizes.

We have ordered rare and exclusive merchandise including signed copies of Miriam Toews Women Talking, Kelly Barnhill’s The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Chelsea Cain’s Man-Eaters Volume 1, and so much more.

We are also hosting a Youth Book Fest local author fair for Children’s and Young Adult authors at noon that day.

    I got the email saying I was chosen as one of the VIBs, and I wanted to know if it would work just for myself, or can my fiance tag along? I’m really excited for the event!
