If this year has taught us anything as a small business, it’s the resilience and empathy of the book community. Gingko Press has had the honor of being in business for 30 years, thanks largely in part to the independent bookstores who work so hard to get our titles into customers’ hands.

In celebration of Independent Bookstore Day 2020, we’ve compiled a list of amazing indies located across the country. While many stores remain closed for public browsing and cannot fully participate in IBD as in previous years, we’ve been inspired by the ingenious ways these stores are still servicing their patrons through online ordering and virtual events. Please show your support by shopping locally and sending love to your community bookstores, today and every day!

Thank you to all the employees and loyal customers of these establishments. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your support.
