Sparta Books joins bookstores across the nation in celebrating the 3rd Annual Independent Bookstore Day. We will have exclusive Indie Bookstore Day merchandise for sale, refreshments and give-a-ways. The bookstore is where you'll want to be all day long!

Children's Author/Illustrator Jordan P. Novak will join us from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. sharing her debut picture book, MOSQUITOES CAN'T BITE NINJAS. She will have a table set up in the children's section making NINJA HEADBANDS with all the children. Jordan will be happy to talk to you about her journey as an Author and Illustrator and answer any questions you or your young readers may have. Jordan will personalize all copies of her book sold that day.

Book description:
Mosquitoes can bite all kinds of people--ballerinas, chefs, babies, even you and me. But they can't bite . . . NINJAS! Mosquitoes might be quick, but ninjas are quicker. Mosquitoes might be sneaky, but ninjas are sneakier. And mosquitoes might be hungry, but ninjas are . . . hungrier! With tons of not-very-stealthy appeal, Jordan P. Novak's debut delivers buzzy, wacky, and hilarious story.

Jordan Novak is an artist and children's book author/ illustrator living in New York's Hudson Valley. When she isn't writing, painting or drawing, she is raising three little humans. She enjoys building fairy worlds and playing dress-up (especially if it involves a tea party), making up new bedtime songs every night and teaching art to tiny people.

Why are we celebrating independent bookstores?

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they're community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year.
