Post-Indie Bookstore Day Post


Too many bookstores (!) Too little time! Last Saturday was a rush to spend serious browsing time in all of the bookstores noted on the map. One that I missed was the new (to me) Daybreak Press Global Bookshop & Gathering Space. (

Some time ago I had written about Daybreak’s Grand Avenue site. (   Later I lamented that store’s closing. Still, I didn’t follow up to learn about their new location near the University of Minnesota at 720 Washington Avenue, SE

Though I didn’t visit Saturday, I will do so soon. In the meantime, I want to be certain that, since November 2015, Daybreak is welcome space for the U of M crowd and the community at large. What remains is the mission of the enterprise which is to “create a platform for education, activism, and positive community experiences in Minnesota.” The clear plan is to work towards that goal in an environment that features books from around the world and space for community gatherings and programming.”

Hours at the “newish” Daybreak are Monday-Saturday 10-9, Sunday 12-5.
