‘Independent Bookstore Day’ is Every Day at Watermark Books


Watermark Books celebrate Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, May 2.

WICHITA, Kan. — Bookstores from coast-to-coast will mark “Independent Bookstore Day” on Saturday, May 2. More than 400 retailers from Alaska to Maine will celebrate their value to their communities with author readings, special sales, and other activities.


A marquee destination for book-lovers, Watermark Books is the literary heart and soul of Wichita, Kansas.

While a national event is a great idea, author Grant Overstake says book-lovers in his hometown can celebrate Independent Bookstore Day every day, thanks to the wonderful people at Watermark Books and Cafe.

Watermark Books and Cafe, founded in 1977, is a homegrown, literary, independent bookstore and restaurant located at the corner of Douglas and Oliver in the College Hill neighborhood of Wichita. The store will participate in the national event from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. with author visits, new books and art prints for sale. (Click for full schedule). Continue reading
