Thanks to Candlewick, Penguin Random House, Harper Collins and the ABA, we are able to provide  FREE Independent Bookstore Day bookmarks to all stores

Bookmarks will be all about IBD on one side and contain ads for indie-friendly titles on the other. Titles being promoted include:  Be Frank with Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson (Morrow),  The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney (Harper),  Heat & Light by Jennifer Haigh (Harper),  Salt to the Sea by Rupta Sepetys (Penguin), a selection of Penguin Classics (PRH), and Raymie Nightingale  by Kate DiCamillo (Candlewick).  Each bundle of 500 bookmarks will contain a mix of all titles.

Order as many as you think your store(s) can give out in April- from 500 to 15,000 (multiples of 500 only). All stores must agree to give out the IBD bookmarks in place of or in addition to their own bookmarks for the month of April (but you can start as soon as your receive them). 

Your bookmark order will be shipped by the ABA in a separate mailing in conjunction with the March Red Box. Please keep an eye out for it! 

See the catalog and order exclusive IBD items and the free bookmarks here!

Reminder that orders are due by February 1.
