Independent Bookstore Day

When: Sat., April 29, 10 a.m. 2017

People who love reading often make it a point to buy books from independent bookstores because life without being able to comb their aisles would be dreary if not entirely unlivable. If you buy your books on Amazon, consider this your chance to help sustain these vital community hubs and bastions of culture. On Independent Bookstore Day, the Triangle's stellar bookstores are adding even more enticements. Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill will feature a panel discussion on the ins and outs of bookselling, along with IBD-themed books and art. Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh offers storytime for both kids and adults. In Durham, the Regulator's Bookshop Challenge lets you compete to be a bookseller for a day. And Pittsboro's McIntyre's Books presents readings by esteemed local authors including Carla Buckley, Michael Mayo, Barbara Claypoole White, and Nancie McDermott. —David Klein
