Thinking back on this fun day, May 2nd, at the Blue Bunny Bookstore in Dedham.
National Independent Bookstore Day
The nine regional independent bookseller associations across the country are working together to collaboratively support a national Independent Bookstore Day on May 2, 2015.

- 11-2 pm: Blue Bunny proprietors and authors Peter H. Reynolds and Paul A. Reynolds will be operating a video-booth for IBD customers to give a one-minute pitch for their favorite books.
- 2-3 pm: Local folksinger Tom Smith will be on-hand for free stories and songs to celebrate the day.
- All day: Limited edition merchandise, special for Independent Bookstore Day, including a new Peter Reynolds print, will be available.
- All day: Launch of a Blue Bunny scavenger hunt game that will run through the month of May.
- All day: Refreshments and special prizes.
