Downtown bookstores participate in first ever Lansing Book Crawl

LANSING, Mich. — Bookshops in Downtown Lansing and REO Town came together on Saturday for the city’s first ever book crawl.

“This started because this past year or so there’s been a huge boom of indie bookshops all along Washington Avenue,” said Casey Holland, co-owner of Wayfaring Booksellers.

She and other independent bookstore owners in the area noticed an influx of new stores over the last year.
