This Saturday 7th October, booksellers across the country will be holding special events to celebrate bookstores and the important role they play in communities across the UK and Ireland. Now in its second year, Bookshop Day is part of the annual Books Are My Bag Campaign, a nationwide collaboration between publishers, bookshops and authors to celebrate high street bookshops and the joy they bring readers of all ages.
With a wide range of events and campaigns taking place this year, from the #oneinamillion competition to the BAMB Readers Awards, Bookshop Day is just one of a whole host of activities Books are My Bag are running this year. Visit the website for more details including a map of your local bookstores and information on how they are celebrating this year.
Happy Bookshop Day 2017!
