A day just for us and people like us!  Huzzah! Come down to M. Judson on Saturday, April 27 to celebrate Independent Book Store Day!  We'll have special stuff going on all day long (9 am - 9 pm.) Here's a sample of some of the amazing people who will help us celebrate.  We hope you will, too!
  • Author Stephanie Morgan will host story time, sharing from her Tails from the Trail series.
  • Beth Ables will be here with her cookbook/magazine, A Place Here, thoughts and recipes for gathering at the table.
  • Our very own Ashley Warlick will be here with her book, The Arrangement.
Also you can get exclusive IBD items only available on the day! A bookish tote illustrated by the amazing Jane Mount is *free* with purchases over $100! 

I am not an official promoter of IBD or any of these bookstores. I just thought it would be nice to help promote their fun events.
