Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27: Independent Bookstore Day 2019!

At A Book For All Seasons, we’ll celebrate the theme “Knowledge Is Power” with fabulous authors, surprises and special book-lover’s items only available from your indie bookseller.

Noon to 1 p.m., Wendy J. Fox: Fox shares her latest, “If The Ice Had Held.” The grand-prize winner of the Santa Fe Writer’s Project Literary Award is a story about second chances, both haunting and luminous. Reviewers called the book, “an intricate mosaic shimmering with gorgeous prose.”

1 to 2 p.m., Deborah Cuyle: Cuyle shares “The 1910 Wellington Disaster,” featuring stories and images from the deadliest avalanche-train disaster in America’s history,” which occurred on Stevens Pass. With snow falling as much as 1 foot per hour and rising up to 20 feet deep, the Seattle Express and a fast mail train were stranded under the snowpacked mountains.

2 to 3 p.m. Blake Suzelis: Suzelis shares “The Gift of Luck: The 10 Stages to Deep and Lasting Change,” a new, holistic understanding of change. Join the adventure bigger than yourself, begin a movement of change within and around you, and watch the world change for good.

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national event that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Every store is unique and independent, and every event is different.

Independent bookstores are not just stores; we’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. We are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. We are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

Join A Book for All Seasons for a day of activities and fun.
