Independent Bookstore Day is Happening May 9!

Independent bookstores are not just stores—they are community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

Following the runaway success of last year’s California Bookstore Day, bookstores across the country are now preparing for Independent Bookstore Day (IBD), a nationwide celebration of books and independent bookstores taking place on Saturday, May 9 in NOLA. Come join Tubby & Coo’s to help celebrate! We’ll have events all day, exclusive merchandise, and giveaways, and we’ve partnered with two other local book shops – Garden District Book Shop and Octavia Books – for a fun scavenger hunt where you can possibly win $75 in gift certificates to all your favorite local book shops! Also, if you’re one of the first 66 people to purchase one of the exclusive sale items and/or spend at least $25 in the shop on Independent Bookstore Day, you will score a free Blackbird Letterpress New Orleans Journal (see EXCLUSIVE SALE ITEMS for photo).

Make sure you take photos and tag us on social media (@tubbyandcoos)! We’ll select three lucky customers who tag us – one on Facebook, one on Twitter, and one on Instagram – to receive the employee discount at the shop on their next TWO purchases. Use the hashtag #IBD15 when you post about Independent Bookstore Day. #tagon
