To celebrate Canadian Independent Bookstore Day, we’re sharing some of the awesome National Poetry Month displays installed in independent bookstores all across Canada that we’ve seen on social media this month. Click the photo to visit the bookseller’s website. Thanks to each and every small bookstore that makes a space for poetry on their shelves!

Canadian Independent Bookstore Day is a day to celebrate the amazing independent bookstores in communities across Canada that develop and maintain a thriving book industry across the country. It is a day to go out into your community and enjoy the unique intersection of art, culture, business and opportunity that bookstores provide.
