National Bookstore Day

November 7: SAVE THE DATE!

Celebrate Publishers Weekly’s First

"National Bookstore Day

The inaugural event, sponsored by book industry magazine, Publishers Weekly (PW), aims to celebrate bookselling and the vibrant culture of bookstores. The event, first announced at Book Expo America in May 2009, has grown to 100 stores nationwide and counting. PW launched this event to pay recognition to the wonderful stores that are central to the communities they serve. The concept is to “build visibility by banding together,” says Ron Shank, Group Publisher of PW, by “helping to drive new (and faithful) customers into their local book stores.”
