Help complete the world's longest tattoo chain on IBD: Litographs took the entirety of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and broke it into 5,000 individually designed temporary tattoos. The goal is to recreate this iconic novel on the skin of 5,000 readers. They have collected nearly 3,000 photographs, and the goal is to complete the chain on Independent Bookstore Day 2016. Join a World Record!                                                                                                                                                                                                      

2pm: Beth Kephart

Our very own, local and prolific author Beth Kephart will be available to sign not one, not two but three of her books (or any of her 25 backlist books you are interested in.) Cathy is recommending This is the Story of You as her read-at-the-shore book.

3 pm: Allyson Kramer, Naturally Lean

Healthy, whole foods based, vegan and gluten-free recipes for breakfasts to desserts and everything in between--from a beloved local blogger and author. Best of all Allyson is bringing snacks and will answer all of your questions.

5 pm: Join us as we break out the bubbly
