Independent Bookstore Day is Saturday April 28th

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, refreshments, kids events, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

On Saturday April 28th, all day, we will have special merchandise and store specials throughout the day in celebration of Independent Bookstore Day. The is a Connecticut-wide bookstore passport for $500 worth of prizes (see below).




Also, will be giving away FREE digital downloads to folks who visit us during the day- wow!! Learn more HERE

ALSO, as part of the celebration of the day, Sharon Struth will do a book signing of her latest book, Willow’s Way from 1:00-2:00pm.

About the book:

Willow Armstrong, the once-famous “Queen of Weight Loss” and president of Pound Busters, succumbed to stress eating after her divorce. Now the scandal of getting caught on camera binging on pizza, and the internet-wide mocking of her new curves, may destroy her career. Add in a business advisor who drained her finances, and Willow is out of options-until she learns she’s inherited a house in England’s most picturesque locale, The Cotswolds….
