Looking for a page turner? Like to support print media and independent retailers? Local bookstores, including East West Bookshop (Mountain View), Kepler's (Menlo Park) and Books Inc. (Palo Alto and Mountain View) will be celebrating Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 30, with special giveaways, treats, sales, author events, activities for kids and more. For example, East West is showcasing 12 local self-published authors; Kepler's will have a section of the store dedicated to crafts and "celebrating the joys of all things paper," and will serve strawberry lemonade and "book cookie catchers"; and Books Inc and Palo Alto Children's Theatre will team up for an acting workshop for kids, based on classic children's stories. For more store-specific information, check Kepler's, Books Inc and East West Bookshop.
