Celebrate with special promotions and author events in the store.

Independent Bookstore Day draws on the success of last year's California Bookstore Day with more than 400 stores taking part nation wide.

At Bookworks, we will celebrate local authors with Carolyn Meyer and David Thurlo. Carolyn Meyer, author of the new book Diary of a Waitress, Harvey Girls fiction for youth, will be here at 10:30 a.m. David Thurlo, Albuquerque mystery writer, will join us to read from his new book Grave Consequences.

Bookworks is celebrating 30 years this year and we want to honor our loyal customers and event attendees! We will also be launching our new loyalty program, whereby customers can sign up to get a loyalty card that they can have punched at Bookworks events. After one attends 10 events, they receive a 30% discount on a single purchase. We will also be giving away scores of Advance Readers Copies on Independent Bookstore Day. Come by and support local business and bookstores!!
