Saint Jordi's Day is a day of books, roses, and romance and Warwick's brings it to La Jolla all the way from Barcelona. Saint Jordi is the Catalan name for Saint George, the patron saint of Catalonia. As legend has it, Saint Jordi slew a dragon to save a princess and then plucked a red rose for the princess from a rose bush which sprouted from the exact spot that the dragon's blood had spilled. To commemorate Saint Jordi's day, men and women in Barcelona take to the streets to buy and exchange books and roses for their sweethearts. More books are sold on this day in Barcelona than the entire rest of the year combined. Join Warwick's in celebration of this unique cultural tradition! 

Also kicking off on Saturday, April 27th is The San Diego Book Crawl, back for its seventh year with more prizes for crawlers than ever before! The San Diego Book Crawl is an annual event, since 2018, that encourages San Diegans to visit as many participating local independent bookstores as possible over three days. Book Crawlers receive a Book Crawl ‘Passport’ at their first bookstore stop and receive stamps as they shop at any of the participating bookstores. The more stamps you collect, the more prizes you win (while supplies last). Prizes will include the SD Book Crawl 2024 Limited Edition Tote Bag and SD Book Crawl 2024 Exclusive Enamel Pin designed by Susie Ghahremani! Follow us on Instagram at @sdbookcrawl for updates.
