Sidetrack is excited to celebrate the 11th annual Independent Bookstore Day! This national one-day party held the last Saturday in April celebrates independent bookstores across the country with exclusive books and literary gifts, and other fun events. It's a party you won't want to miss! 

In addition to IBD exclusive merchandise, we'll have special giveaways throughout the day, while supplies last. Kids will be able to participate in a Richard Scarry themed drawing contest!

We're also participating in MI Book Hop, which launches on IBD! This statewide event encourages people to visit bookstores across Michigan from April 27 - May 27 and win prizes! For more details on MI Book Hop, visit
