Following the success of California Bookstore Day last year, the Northern California Independent Bookstore Association and the American Booksellers Association have teamed up to take the popular event nationwide. On May 2, Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) will bring readings, games, parties, music, and more to independent bookstores around the country. Limited-edition literary treasures will be available at IBD bookstores, including signed prints, original essays, and exclusive books from popular authors such as Margaret Atwood, Roxane Gay, and Stephen King. And, of course, there are a wealth of literary events planned at our own local bookstores, accompanied by food, live bands, happy-hours, and special author appearances. Among others, Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) will host Mallory Ortberg, co-creator of The Toast online magazine, and author of Texts From Jane Eyre, who will read from her works. Laurel Bookstore (1423 Broadway, Oakland) will have Teresa LeYung Ryan, author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase in 22 Days share her secrets. Plus, Diesel, A Bookstore (5433 College Ave., Oakland) will be serving drinks with literary karaoke and trivia. Other celebrating bookstores include Moe’s, Mrs. Dalloway’s, Books Inc., and A Great Good Place for Books — just to name a few.
