Is your child a big reader? Treat them to tens of thousands of used books, all under one roof – plus two cool guest writers – at the biggest used-book sale in the region: Bookstock, which hits Laurel Park Place in Livonia April 22-29, 2018.
A bona fide book lover’s paradise, this page-turning event starts with a Sunday pre-sale event that runs 8:15-11 a.m. and costs $20. But after that short time, admission is totally free. Regular hours are 11 a.m.-6 pm. Sundays and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
In addition to the books up for grabs, you’ll find DVDs, CDs, audio books, magazines, even vinyl records, video cassettes, and computer games. If you’re looking to “stock” up, this is definitely the place to be!
What’ll sort of reads will you find specifically? Just about any genre or category you want, including children’s books, cookbooks, comic books and even some collectables.
Books are priced $.50 to $4 and other media will run you the same. The money funds education and literacy programs in the area and Detroit daily newspaper writers Rochelle Riley and Neal Rubin serve as honorary event co-chairs this year.
