Children's items include an exclusive, signed IBD edition of Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants by Andrea Beaty, signed prints from author Maggie Stiefvater and a "mini-book" featuring two short stories by Wing of Fire author Tui T. Sutherland.
The fifth annual Independent Bookstore Day will be held on Saturday, April 27. More information can be found here, and booksellers attending Winter Institute in Albuquerque, N.Mex., later this month will be able to ask questions, place orders and share ideas at an IBD panel.
