Independent Bookshop Week 2021

18 June 2021

Independent Bookshop Week 2021 will take place Saturday 19 June to Saturday 26 June.

Independent Bookshop Week is part of the Books Are My Bag campaign and run by the Booksellers Association. The week celebrates independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland with events, celebrations, reading groups, storytelling, author signings, literary lunches and face painting!

Your local bookshop will have their own way of celebrating, and we encourage you to visit to celebrate with them. Search for bookshops here.

Follow @booksaremybag and #IndieBookshopWeek to keep up to date with the week's celebrations.


The Indie Book Awards winners will also be announced during the week. See the full shortlists here.
