“Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re 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.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. And here’s more from the folks at the helm of Indie Bookstore Day: “In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.” That we are! Seaport Books looks forward to being a community resource and book lover haven for years to come. Join us on Saturday April 29th as we celebrate Independent Bookstore Day!
There’s nothing quite as exciting as opening a new book. Unless, of course, it’s opening a new bookstore. And so it begins. Seaport Books opens its doors on April 26th. Where will the adventure take us? Who will cross our threshold and from what parts of the world? How many readers will fall in love with a new author? Which artist will become a new favorite? Let’s find out. Thank you for sharing the journey.
