Let's Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day!

We are so excited to celebrate our second Independent Bookstore Day at the shop!

It's a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country! Indie bookshops will have exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before, or after, or online!

We will have activities, discounts, and giveaways throughout the whole weekend! :D

  • Every purchase over $50 in store, will receive a free mystery wrapped book! Any purchase on our website (!!) throughout the whole weekend will receive a mystery wrapped book as well!
  • Saturday's storytime at 2PM will be extra special! Author-Illustrator Dana Wulfekotte, will be reading from her book "Rabbit & Possum" followed by a fun activity!
  • Our Local Authors bay will be 15% off for the whole weekend!
  • We will also be raffling two totes! One with all kid titles and the other for adults :)
  • Finally, on Sunday April 28th at 4PM, we will have a comic book workshop for 8-12 year olds with Kristen Gudsnuk, author-illustrator of Making Friends! You must reserve a spot by emailing us: info@thequeensbookshop.com. Only 10 spots will be available! (ALL SPOTS ARE TAKEN, IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITLIST - EMAIL US!)


It's going to be quite the celebration, hope to see you then!

P.S. Any bicyclist interested in a Queens Indie Bookstore Bike Ride?! The great folks of Transportation Alternatives Queens Volunteer Committee are planning a 14 mile ride and stopping at four bookstores in Queens (us being one of them!) More info on their page! :)
