It still can’t happen as usual, sadly; but all your local Seattle area bookstores wanted to do SOMETHING to honor the day. Here’s what they’ve come up with:
Visit 10 of 21 participating bookstores (in person or virtually), make a purchase at each (no minimum purchase required) within 10 days, and you’ll receive a limited edition 2021 SIBD tote bag.
Purchases made through Bookshop are valid, so long as the receipt indicates the purchase was affiliated with a participating bookstore. Entries can be submitted digitally OR by mail, postmarked by May 15th, and must be submitted all together. Entries submitted in more than one format will not qualify.
Please visit the SIBD website (www.seattlebookstoreday.com) to learn more about how to “visit” your favorite Seattle area bookstores. You can also pick up a printed passport here at the store.
We are happy to announce the release of Mike Lawson’s latest Joe DeMarco thriller: House Standoff ! Mike will be here at the store to sign on Saturday, April 10th, from 1:00 to 3:00. We’re hoping for weather nice enough to allow an outside event, complete, of course, with all the necessary spacing and masks. If it’s crummy enough to make us move inside, we’ll keep the doors open and regulate numbers in the store.
If you prefer to avoid events but would like to get a book signed for you to pick up later or have sent, give us a call and we’ll arrange it. And if you just want the book, it’s available now!
