On Saturday, Aug. 16, from 11:30 am to 7 pm, celebrate all things books at BookPeople’s National Bookstore Day. This celebration is less about all bookstores in the country and more…er… totally, just about BookPeople.

Checkout the BookPeople Sellers’ Top 100 recommended books of all time, participate in book trivia, meet authors, enjoy giveaways, cake, champagne (because BookPeople is fancy), and all around fun. Ever wondered what the heck happens on that mysterious fourth floor? Find out on Saturday at 1:30 pm! The day culminates in a book-to-film adaptation of your choosing (everyone will vote) at 4:30 pm.
