An Exciting Announcement from Main Street Books

by | Mar 16, 2022

Announcing the Greater Charlotte Book Crawl 2022


Dear Readers,

One of our favorite days is six weeks away, and we have a big announcement.

On the last Saturday of April each year, we celebrate Independent Bookstore Day. This year, we have joined with our indie bookstore friends all over the Charlotte area to host an epic adventure.

Join us in April for the first ever Greater Charlotte Book Crawl. Beginning April 1st, pick up a passport at Main Street Books and visit the eleven indie bookstores throughout the month of April to collect stamps in your passport. On Saturday, April 30th, bring your stamped passport back to Main Street Books for quirky perks, a big pat on the back, and an all-day party!

Go ahead and follow the Book Crawl on Instagram and read about the details at

I’ve poured a lot of my creative energy into this endeavor and would love for you to meet all of the wonderful people who make up our literary bookstore community. 

With gratitude, 

PS – We’ve also recently connected with the Council for Children’s Rights, a Charlotte-based nonprofit working to ensure every child’s right to be safe, healthy, and well-educated through legal aid and mental health advocacy. This spring, CCR is hosting a multi-event awareness campaign which includes a book series. Scroll down to learn about their selections and the April 6 kickoff event. 

PPS – Our Wildcat homecomings continue!

Jan Blodgett and Roshan Paul ’02

Last week, we supported an event at Davidson College with Roshan Paul ’02 as he spoke about his book, The New Reason to Work. (Here he is pictured with bookseller and longtime friend Jan, who was Davidson’s E.H. Little Library’s archivist when Roshan was a student.)

This weekend, we’ll be hosting Billy Woodson ’71 at the bookstore on Saturday, March 19 for a 2:30 pm meet and greet signing of his book, Waccamaw Gold. Happy reunion weekend to the Classes of 1970 and 1971.
