Indy Bookstore Shout-Out!
Do you have a local bookstore you love? Give them a shout-out. Every day from April 17 - 24, Independent Bookstore Day will choose a random winner from the people posting with #BookstoreShoutOut and #IndieBookstoreDay on Twitter or IG. Winners will receive an Independent Bookstores of the United States Map from Pop-Chart, a free 3-month membership from Libro.fm, and a 2021 IBD tote bag. Here's how:
1. Post an Indie Bookstore Day-inspired video or still: In a bookstore, holding your TBR pile, reading in bed, etc.
2. @ the bookstore(s) you plan on visiting on Bookstore Day + two of your favorite readers.
3. Tag your post with #BookstoreShoutOut and #IndieBookstoreDay*
Additionally, Independent Bookstore Day will be hosting a virtual party on Twitter on Wednesday, April 21 at 4 pm EDT. Join at @BookstoreDay, #indiebookstoreday.
I'll be offering a free virtual reading with a Q and A session on May 7th to celebrate Children's Book Week. This time, I'll let schools decide from which of my 178 traditionally published books they'd like me to read aloud. On that same day, I'll be announcing the creativity winners of my Haunted Classroom Writing Contest. Hope your class will participate. I have a few spots left so I hope you'll contact me here to schedule a time for your read aloud from the book of your choice.
