About The Event

What  better way to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day than with a book  crawl celebrating eight of Lansing's wonderfully eclectic indie  bookstores?

Visit  each participating bookshop to collect a pin- either by making a  purchase or buying the pin for $1 during crawl hours, 11am-4pm.  (Individual shop hours vary, but we will all be open during this time  frame.) Once you've collected all eight pins, take them into The Robin  Books in REO Town and proudly display them to the shopkeep, who will  then reward your efforts with a FREE limited-edition, commemorative  Independent Bookstore Day 2024 tote, AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
