“Independent bookshops? What a terrifying thought! Go into a bookshop and anything could happen to you. You could be educated, informed, inspired, transformed, terrified, amused … you might come out a completely different person to the one you went in as. It happened to me. You have been warned.” – Sally Nicholls
Independent Bookshop Week (20th – 27th June) is a campaign run by the Booksellers Association and its members to celebrate independent bookshops on the high streets of the UK & Ireland.
Incorporating National Reading Group Day on Saturday 20th June and the Bookshop Crawl on Saturday 27th June, this year’s IBW is the ninth, and involves almost 400 indie bookshops.
Independent Bookshop Week is closely associated with the Books Are My Bag campaign, which celebrates all high street bookshops in October each year, and is part of the BA’s IndieBound initiative.
