Some of 2018’s 20+ exclusive Bookstore Day books and items available only at participating IBD stores on Saturday, April 27th include:

Women Talking (signed edition with an exclusive IBD-only cover)

Author: Miriam Toews

Fans of Toews’ darkly funny fiction have been waiting for this one. And we have an exclusive signed edition with a redesigned, IBD-only cover.

Adjustment Day (signed edition with an exclusive IBD-only cover)

Author:  Chuck Palahniuk

SIGNED with an EXCLUSIVE cover, this edition will pub on Bookstore Day, 3 days before the official paperback release. Adjustment Day, the author's first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society.


The 2019 Bad Citizen Graffiti Stencil: COURAGE IS AS CONTAGIOUS AS FEAR

Author: Susan Sontag

Every year we create our signature “Bad Citizen” Graffiti Stencil to highlight the authors and the words that push us to think, read, and be disruptive when necessary.

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.”
