Independent Bookstore Day

“But ideas lie everywhere, like apples fallen and melting in the grass for lack of wayfaring strangers with an eye and a tongue for beauty, whether absurd, horrific or genteel.” Ray Bradbury

Bradbury’s essay “The Joy of Writing” is an exuberant call to arms. With a respected nod to iconic story tellers like Dickens and Shakespeare, Bradbury urges writers to be inspired by what they love or hate rather than the latest commercial trend. Though I’ve been among the storyteller ranks for most of my life, after reading this essay I snapped to attention like a new recruit, grabbed my notebook and pen eager to capture my latest inspiration before it slipped away in the daily grind.

April 28th is the fourth annual Independent Bookstore Day and I can think of no better place to rub elbows with literary icons or discover new voices than Sundance Books.  Like many indie bookstores throughout the country, Sundance will offer exclusive merchandise created especially for Independent Bookstore Day by authors and publishers.
