Indie Bookstore Day!

It's a party! Join us for the 5th Annual celebration of all things bookish!

Saturday, April 27, 2019 - 10:00am to 9:00pm

On this special day, Mrs. Dalloway's will offer exclusive merchandise (books, pins, stencils, notebooks) created especially for Independent Bookstore Day by major publishers and authors. (Some are free!) Since its inception in 2014, more than 200 authors have demonstrated their support for independent bookstores by donating work for Bookstore Day. Follow this link to see this year's items. Note: Not all stores will have all items. Call to make sure the item you want is in stock.

In addition, we have a limited supply of beautiful 2019 Independent Bookstore Day bags and t-shirts with art created by Jane Mount, the painter behind Ideal Bookshelf and the author of Bibliophile. It features a selection of titles from Bookstore Day's exclusive items over the last five years. 

Our audio partner,, is offering a free audiobook. Follow this link to sign up and claim yours!

The 2019 IBD author ambassador Tayari Jones says, “Indie stores stock books by hand and sell them the same way. They know what we want and need to read because they know us, as people. A writer is not a machine. A reader is not an app. We are human beings and so are the independent bookstore workers who show up each day and place books in our hands.”
