Events Buzz: April Almost Over

booksflowersWe had a lovely time this Friday with Worcester Storytellers and Glenn D’Alessio this past Friday. Thank you to everyone who came out!

April ends this Thursday! That means you only have until then to stop into our “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street to:

  • Donate to the Worcester—The City That Reads book drive. Donate gently used books suitable for K-8 students—or buy one of our books and get an additional 10% off for donation.
  • Try to win a $50 Gift Certificate by telling us when you see our ad on WCCA TV 13.

We’re also still ordering books for summer reading. Teachers and educators, please send your summer reading lists to orders@anniesbooksworcester.com so we can make sure we have all the books our students need.

THIS SATURDAY, May 2nd, we’re celebrating Independent Bookstore Day with an all-day event of sales (10% more on ALL BOOKS!), treats, and other giveaways—including two raffles every hour from 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM for a chance to win FREE NEW BOOKS from 12 of the genres you can find at our store!

Also, starting on Sunday, May 3rd, we’ll be open an extra hour every Sunday, so that means you can shop at your favorite Worcester bookstore until 6PM on Sundays!

And when you do stop in, look for our beautiful Mother’s Day display with a great selection of books. Gift certificates make a great Mother’s Day gift, too!

Now, onto our events! Below is our ongoing list with updates, but watch our website and Facebook page for even more updates!

Coming in May:
