Coe, Michelle Hoover, Jenna Blum, Jennifer S. Brown, Juliette Fay, Jennifer Haigh, Nichole Bernier, Joanna Rakoff, Meredith Goldstein, and Virginia Pye!
What else is going on? We're glad you asked:
At 8:00 a.m., join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of Belmont Books! See what it takes to make this whole awesome machine run, and learn about it all from one of our best booksellers!
Throughout the day, authors will be here both signing their newest books and selling their favorite books! What more could you ask for?
We also have two scavenger hunts planned: one for adults, and one for children! If you complete the scavenger hunt, you can win a 20% off coupon to use at the store!
In addition to the scavenger hunt, we have a whole array of other events planned for kids, including arts, crafts, and literary tattoos.
What's this you've heard about the "Metro Boston Bookstore Raffle?" Whatever it is, you heard correct! We're partnering with local bookstores in the area, and for every bookstore you visit, you'll be entered into a raffle for a collection of Advanced Reader copies of great titles coming out this year.
Oh also, you know Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere? She has donated a basket of signed copies of her own books and some of her favorite titles for whoever comes closest to guessing how many books are in our store.
We hope you are as excited about all of this as we are--and we hope you'll join us this Saturday, April 28 for Independent Bookstore Day!
