Next week (29th June - 6th July) is 'Independent Booksellers Week 2013' here in the UK which celebrates independent bookshops.
Independent bookshops are increasingly a destination of choice, especially for consumer's who want to be part of their community. Very often, bookshops are already at the heart of a community, and a place where customers discover their next great book and where they can meet somebody to talk to about it. Independent booksellers are uniquely placed to talk to their customers about independence and about sustaining a healthy high street.
During Independent Booksellers Week 2013, there will be a wide range of exciting events happening in a wide range of independent bookshops across the UK. Check in with your nearest local bookshop and see if they are running any special events during 'Independent Booksellers Week 2013' .
Independent Booksellers Week is now in its 7th year and each year more and more bookshops, authors and publishers are getting involved!
