Independent Bookstore Day! Events all day!

Join us at City Lit Books in celebrating Independent Bookstore Day! We are thrilled to participate in the third year of a nationwide party as big and varied as the country itself! We have events and giveaways all day, culminating in the book release of our very own T. Sean Steele at 5pm!

In 2015 IBD had more than 350 stores in 45 states putting their bells on and throwing out the welcome mat. City Lit has a lot to celebrate and we want you to join our daylong party! Our celebration includes:

  • Special Story Time at 10:30 with Professor Dave Becker
  • Homemade baked goods made by our booksellers with recipes from some of our favorite cookbooks
  • Book giveaways all day!
  • And for the big finale at 5 PM: Book release event for City Lit bookseller and author: T. Sean Steele! Celebrate the release of T. Sean Steele's novella, Tacky Goblin, at City Lit! Celebrate the release of his novella, Tacky Goblin, with readings from Halle Butler, author of Jillian, James Tadd Adcox, author of Does Not Love, Sarah Carson, author of the poetry collection, Buick City, and more!
