North of Boston Book Trail Challenge 2024

April 27, 2024 April 28, 2024

Book lovers might want to clear their calendars for April 27 and 28 in anticipation of the inaugural North of Boston Book Trail Passport Challenge. Visit as many book trail shops as you can over the weekend to be entered for $4,500 in prizes that include stickers, tote bags, and, of course, books. 

The North of Boston Book Trail includes 16 independent shops throughout the region, each with their own quirky character and personality, from the artsy and playful vibe of Copper Dog in Beverly to the inviting maze of used volumes at Gloucester’s Dogtown Book Shop. The passport challenge is a celebration of Independent Bookstore Day, an annual event on the last Saturday of April, promoting indie booksellers and the contributions they make to community, culture, and local economies.
