Texas Independent Bookstore Day!

Saturday, August 5, 2017 - 10:00am
2421 Bissonnet Street
Houston, TX 77005

BookPeople (Austin) and Brazos Bookstore (Houston) are leading the charge to begin Texas Independent Bookstore Day in 2017. The goal is to turn this into an annual statewide event that takes place on the first Saturday of August (this year, August 5).

Texas Independent Bookstore Day is modeled on the success of Independent Bookstore Day, but designed to highlight Texas bookstores in particular. The Lone Star State is full of dedicated readers and home to a vibrant literary scene, and so this celebration is designed to create a platform where Texas booklovers can coalesce statewide.

Plans at Brazos include:

10:30am: A Texas-themed family story time in the morning, with activities, crafts, and a scavenger hunt

1pm-3pm: The debut of our Paper and Pen Pal Club, which celebrates the value of old-fashioned communication, as well as complimentary coffee

4-5pm: Happy Hour! With beer from 11 Below (sponsored by Spec’s) and specially-curated music from our friends at Cactus Music

6-8pm: A local vendor market, spotlighting some of our favorite Houston artisans, and food
