INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY!!!

Today we all bleed Indie! All over the United States independent bookstores big and small will celebrate what makes us unique by offering limited edition items from incredible artists and authors! We'll have snacks and beverages all day long. 

Also all day long:

  • Our new limited edition John Fante tote will be released!
  • The inagural Skylight Books Golden Ficus Award will be announced! The winning book, selected by Skylight staff as our consensus favorite of 2018, will be sold at 15% off (20% off to Friends with Benefits members!).
  • Mampfen, the new parody L.A. restaurant guide from former Onion editors, will be released. And it's free! (First come, first served.)

From 11 a.m. to noon, artist Jaya Nicely, author of the forthcoming Offline Journal, will be offering drawings of neighborhood sights on postcards of Franny the Skylight bookstore cat! We have early copies of Offline Journal, which will be available for purchase.

Starting at 2 p.m., we will have literary trivia! 

  • Bring a team of up to four players
  • If you want to come solo or with a partial team, we can match you up with other partial teams
  • We will have prizes for first, second, and third place

At 3 p.m., we'll serve cake!

Starting at 5 p.m., we will be celebrating the launch of The Body Papers by Grace Talusan!
