Around the Web: Indie Bookstore Day, NaPoMo, BookTok, and Trademarks
Hello once again, readers! This week’s bookish content round up includes some info about Canadian Independent Bookstore Day, details about National Poetry Month, a dive into BookTok, and a Trademark word quiz.
Independent Bookstore Day
Canadian Independent Bookstore Day is coming up on April 24. As Quill & Quire explains, CIBD is a celebration of indie booksellers. This year, the campaign is getting a boost from the Canadian Independent Bookstore Association, so keep an eye out for events and promotions from your favourite stores.
National Poetry Month
If you’re seeing more poetry lately, it might be because April is National Poetry Month. The League of Canadian Poets have made this year’s theme resilience, which seems fitting. They’ve also got info about how you can get involved on their site.
If you’re not on BookTok yet, you might appreciate Electric Lit’s primer. It’s got all the info you need to start venturing into TikTok’s bookish community.
