California Bookstore Day (CBD)
“The first California Bookstore Day will take place on Saturday May 3, 2014. CBD will harness the creative power of authors, publishers, and booksellers in a state-wide celebration of books and indie bookstores that’s part party, part literary happening and part sales event.
For one day, and one day only, limited, unique, word-based items and books will be available in more than 150 stores across CA. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill signed first editions—these are literature-based art projects, unique books, and collector’s items created for this event only. You can’t get them before. You can’t get them after. And you can’t get them on Amazon.”
