Independent Bookstore Day @ Mac’s Backs Books
Saturday | 10:00 AM–10:00 PM
Bookstores throughout the country and locally will be celebrating Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 30th. Mac's will be selling one-of-a-kind merchandise (like a Neil Gaiman coloring book). We will have street music from 1-5 with Blk Skwrl Akkordion Club of Kent (international music) and Trepanning Trio (avant jazz), book in a box origami for kids (and adults!), face painting from 2-4 p.m, sweet treats and our popular books raffle. Our neighbors at Phoenix Coffee will be helping us celebrate by offering 10% with a Mac's Receipt! Mac's will also be featuring books from Microcosm Press, a terrific indie zine and book publisher with roots in Cleveland. The day concludes with a talk & discussion at 7 p.m. with Tom Grace, author of the new book Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties.
