Independent Bookstore Day 2016

Whistlestop is pleased to present our biggest Independent Bookstore Day celebration yet!
We will be kicking off the day with free baked goods and coffee from a local bakery and coffee roaster. Later on in the day we will be serving a SUPRISE limited edition, custom-made Whistlestop Bookshop item!

We will also be featuring readings and appearances by nationally renowned writers: Kim van Alkemade (Orphan #8) , Susan Perabo (Why They Run the Way They Do, Who I Was Supposed to Be) , and Amy Bates (Ketzel the Cat who Composed, Beach House) . 

To cap it all off we will have a great local jazz band, The EP Project, playing in and around the store, as well as a raffle with items donated by Sandy at Appalachian Whole Foods Market and an Instagram giveaway contest. We will have a table dedicated to a blind date with a book! More details to come! 

In addition to all of these fun, and exclusively Whistlestop activities, we will also be participating in the exclusive Indie Bookstore Day deals!

Step into the Whistlestop Bookshop universe and get swept away in the personalized magic of indie bookstores on April 30th!
