It’s so obvious, we’re wondering why we never thought of this one before! Based upon the time-honored pub crawl, we invite you to join us for our first ever Indie Bookstore Crawl, on Thursday, May 10, beginning at 5:15 PM.
Meet with independent booksellers. Ask questions about how they’re keeping up with the growing popularity of e-readers and competition from the massive online bookstores. Find out what’s selling and what’s not, and of course, browse the shelves while you’re there!
- You may join the crawl at any time and drop off whenever it’s convenient for you.
- Bookstore owners will speak briefly to our group 15 minutes after arrival time.
- Alice’s Teacup café in Books of Wonder will be open for those who desire some mid-crawl fortification, and we will be going to a local bar or restaurant for refreshments after leaving St. Mark’s Bookshop.
- RSVP to programs (at) wnba-nyc (dot) org.
