California Bookstore Day

California Bookstore Day is this Saturday, and I’ll be celebrating the day by reading at two literary institutions in Southern California. On May 3 itself, I’ll be participating in the celebration at the wonderful Granada Books in Santa Barbara. I hope you’ll join me this weekend! More on the holiday:

California Bookstore Day is a statewide party on May 3, 2014 as big and varied as the state itself. It’s more than 90 stores in more than 80 zip codes putting their bells on and throwing out the welcome mat. Think Record Store Day, but for book nerds.

Each store will have its own party. The headline attraction are the just-for-us books you cannot get on any other day at any other place (click here to find the celebration closest to you). But there will also be readings, and prizes, and things to eat and drink. In some cases there will be famous authors and artists, and people writing live poetry… more from the California Bookstore Day website
