Independent Bookstore Day














We're gearing up for our annual Independent Bookstore Day (IBD), and we are excited!

It's a day-long celebration of books, readers, and authors, with prizes, snacks, and book signings throughout the day.


10:00 - noon: The guys from Under the Radar: Michigan will be here slinging their new book!

Noon - 2:00: Ralph Rossell, undertaker and friend of the store

1:00 - 3:00: Vickie Fee (author of the Liv and Di in Dixie mystery series)

3:00 - 5:00: Joe Heywood (Local favorite and author of the Woods Cop and Lute Bapcat series)

  • His new Woods Cop book is Bad Optics. Grady Service is back!

If you've never been, IBD is a national holiday celebrating the success and resilience of independent bookstores. We bring our communities together, and we truly believe our craft of curating literature is a service. We are committed to what we do, and sometimes we just wanna celebrate. So come party with us!
