COVID 19: Support Indie Bookstores

Today was supposed to be Independent Bookstore Day. It's now been rescheduled for August 29, 2020. There's so much worth celebrating right now, today and we want to help you find bookstores to support. Our thanks to bookstores all over the country who are keeping our communities well-read while keeping people safe and healthy.

When we read about Don Gorman of Rocky Mountain Books making a map of Canadian bookstores that are open for delivery, curbside pickup, and shipping, we loved the idea. To celebrate Independent Bookstore day we've borrowed a page from his playbook and created U.S. regional maps of bookstores that are open right now.

We hope you'll share these maps and your favorite local bookstore on social media and use these hastags:

#VirtualBookstoreParty and #ShopBookstoresNow
