Downtown Book Market July 14th, 2012 - Must haves

Hey bibliophiles – mark your calendars! There are two more installments of the summer book market left – including one coming up this weekend on July 14th. Quite the novel idea – having an outdoor book market throughout the summer. With amazing book vendors such as the Glenbow Museum, Shelf Life Books, Owl’s Nest Books and more, it is pretty much guaranteed you will walk away with a stack of really great reads.

I’ve pulled together some classic bookworm staples to keep you looking stylish while you peruse the book stands. You can’t underestimate the power of an excellent book bag. Cram it full of your favourite literature and you’ll be set for every afternoon picnic for the rest of the summer. Located at the Convention Centre Block on Stephen Avenue Walk from 11am – 3pm on July 14 – the books will literally be overflowing. See you there!!

Where to buy downtown:

Marc Jacobs Specs at PlusMaEyewear

UPDATE: We can now confirm that Calgary Reads is bringing Dave Kelly’s new book C is for Calgary. The illustrator Mandy Stobo of the phenomenal Bad Portraits will be signing autographs!
