Independent Bookstore Day--It's Like a National Holiday!

Show your favorite bookstore some love on Independent Bookstore Day, celebrated around the country AND at Once Upon a Storybook! We have exclusive merchandise, available starting on this date, including an Elephant and Piggie READ onesie and Oliver Jeffers print. Throughout the day, we'll have a Make-Your-Own-Little-Golden-Book station!

We'll start the morning with a Super Happy Party Bears Party! Early chapter book author, Marcie Colleen, creator of the Super Happy Party Bears series will be signing books at our store at 11:00. Authors Salina Yoon and Jennifer Gray Olson will be here to support their Super Happy Party Bears friend with face painting, music, bubbles, and games!

Then, in the afternoon, for the older readers, we will have two authors, Elana K. Arnold, author of Far From Fair and the brand new A Boy Called BAT will be signing her books. She's bringing her friend, author Amber Keyser, author of the Quartz Creek Ranch series--a new favorite for all of the horse-lovers out there!

Bears, bats, and books . . . oh my! Join us for the whole day or any part of the day for special Independent Bookstore Day treats, as well as interacting with these amazing authors!!!
