Independent Bookstore Day
April 30

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day celebration that takes place at indie bookstores across the country. We had birthday cake (it’s been seven years since we combined Beagle Books & Bindery and Sister Wolf Books!), exclusive merchandise produced just for the day, some great prizes, a free book with every purchase, AND the new Indie Bookstore map was available! We’re not in this logo, but we are in the map itself!

Paperbag Pricess displays
Paper Bag Princess Day

March 5

In The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch the fiercest dragon in the whole world smashes Princess Elizabeth’s castle, burns all her clothes, and captures her fiancé, Prince Ronald. Elizabeth takes matters into her own hands. With her wits alone and nothing but a paper bag to wear, the princess challenges the dragon to show his strength in the hopes of saving the prince. But is he worth all that trouble?

Jen did a live reading of the book: paper crowns were provided.
