Upcoming events for April and beyond...

Book events! Book events! Book events! Get your calendars ready.

April 22nd
Mark Maciejewski launches his middle grade debut, I AM FARTACUS, at University Bookstore! Yay, Mark!

April 25th
Special storytime at University Bookstore with Brenda Guiberson and Jessixa Bagley!

April 29th is Independent Bookstore Day
Celebrate independent bookstores on the last Saturday in April by popping into your neighborhood store for fun and events. OR...
Do you like a challenge? Do you like adventure? Do you like discounts on books?? If you're booklover enough to go hard, grab a stamp card, a couple of friends, and some snacks. Try to visit all 19 stores participating nearby. Get your card stamped. Stay hydrated. If you make it, there are riches to be had. Sure, there will be glory, AND you'll get 25% off at all participating stores for the whole year. Even if you only make it to 17 or 18, there are contests, barbecues, authors posing as to be had.

May 2nd
Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler) and Lisa Brown introduce GOLDFISH GHOST at University Temple, through University Bookstore. Ticketed event, but one ticket gets you a book and admission for your whole family, maybe even your goldfish.
