NZ Bookshop Day

The first NZ Bookshop Day was in 2015 when Booksellers realised that the narrative around bookshop and book industry health had become negative and needed to change. Local bookshops have become community centres and attract customers back to bricks and mortar retail supporting their neighbourhoods. NZ Bookshop Day celebrates those achievements and welcomes readers back inside their local bookshop

NZ Bookshop Day 2022 is on Saturday 8 October.
