Independent Bookstore Day 2021

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, live music, cupcakes, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, barbecues, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Nowhere else.

Parnassus Books is a participating store once again this year. Please read on for details, including our online sales special and virtual events.

Exclusive Independent Bookstore Day merchandise will be available on our website starting at 10am CDT, April 24. On that day only, get FREE PRIORITY SHIPPING and a free Independent Bookstore Day tote bag (while supplies last) with online orders of $75 or moreuse code FREESHIP75.

IBD items will also be available on a first come, first served basis in our store. Please keep in mind that we are limiting capacity in the store and following safety protocols.

There are also virtual events happening all week long — featuring Glennon Doyle, Amber Ruffin, Kawai Strong Washburn, Tiffany D. Jackson, Thien-Kim Lam and many more! Click here to see the full schedule and join.
