The first-ever California Bookstore Day (CBD), will take place Saturday, May 3, 2014. Nearly 100 participating independent bookstores across the state will provide planned community-oriented literary events. While there they can also purchase exclusive, CBD-only books and book-related items from authors such as Neil Gaiman, George Saunders, Don DeLillo, Lemony Snicket, Michael Pollan, Lisa Brown and many others.
Author James Patterson is a key sponsor of this event as part of his ongoing efforts to support independent bookstores. Other sponsors include the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association and the Southern California Booksellers Association. For more information on the event, check the website.
