Independent Bookstore Day is near! On April 29th, join the party and help us show the world why the Twin Cities love Independent Bookstores! 

It's a day full of fun and books, and this year we have lots of exciting events planned throughout the day. We're open 9:00am-9:00pm on the 29th, so you have a solid day to visit us and the other wonderful bookstores in town. Get those book bags ready and join the party!

What's happening at SubText:
Coffee and donuts in the AM
Storytime with Matt (10:00am-11:00pm)
Music and Tin Whiskers beer in the evening
Plus a sale on used books, a "Poetry on Demand" station with local artists, personalized recommendations from local authors, and much more! 

Independent Bookstore Day Passport:
For the second year running, independent bookstores in the Twin Cities will team up to offer the Twin Cities Independent Bookstore Day Passport. What does that mean, exactly? Pick up the passport from any of the participating stores and get a stamp at each store you visit. Collect 5 stamps to get a special edition map, and collect 10 or 18 stamps to be entered to win exciting literary prizes! For more information about participating stores, prizes, and rules, visit the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association.
