Love your independent bookstores? Then come celebrate Independent Bookstore Day, Saturday, April 29th, with us! We'll be joined by local authors from several genres, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Meet your reading tribe, talk books, share recommendations and discover something newperhaps even take home a signed copy!

Author line-up includes Dan Eberhart, Betsy Dornbusch, Angela Scheideler, Lisa Scheideler, Danette Scott and Ling Kee. Genres range from adult fiction and fantasy to early readers and picture books.



Every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., our littlest booklovers gather around actor Susie Leiser, who brings beloved and brand new stories to life! Come meet other families from the community and stay afterwards to play in our recently updated playhouse!

Schools and fundraisers

Schools are special, and we know it. So throughout the year we host in-store bookfairs as fundraisers for schools and other worthy organizations, with up to 20% of book sales going into your fundraising. Let us know if you want to partner with us by emailing Anne,!

Author appearances and signings

One of our favorite things! Throughout the year, authors come in to sign books and chat with readers. Sometimes it's one at a time, sometimes it's a big gang (what's a group of authors called?). It's always a good time. We invite local authors to our quarterly showcases and look forward to Small Business Saturday in November when 15+ authors are here for a day of celebrating Denver readers!

Community events
Sometimes we even get out of the store to spread the book love. Most recently we celebrated Halloween and Christmas by gifting books at our local YMCA community parties, and handing out gift certificates to morning commuters on Bike to Work Day.
