Pop Culture Celebration Continues at Newport Bookstore

Barnes & Noble, Inc, the nation’s largest retail bookseller and the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, announced yet another week of thrilling events designed for fans of everything pop-culture, from the 1980s to vinyl records. Week four of the Get Pop-Cultured with Barnes & Noble campaign kicks off with a celebration of the 1980s at Barnes & Noble Newport at Newport on the Levee.

During Throwback Thursday 1980s on July 23, customers can enjoy a 1980s-style Keith Haring Postcard Art Contest, in which participants will design their own Keith Haring-style postcard and upload it to Instagram using the hashtag #bnKeithHaring on or before July 27. The single entry that receives the most “likes” will win a spectacular Keith Haring gift set.

Then, on Friday, July 24, at 7:00 p.m., Barnes & Noble is celebrating fandom during its special Fangirl Friday event, during which fangirls are invited to come together at Barnes & Noble Newport and celebrate with themed activities, giveaways and much more. 

The fun continues into the weekend with a special Vinyl Day on Saturday, July 25; an entire day devoted to vinyl records during which music lovers can explore Barnes & Noble Newport’s growing assortment and participate in events celebrating vinyl culture.

The final event is James Patterson Day, on Sunday, July 26, where readers are invited to Barnes & Noble Newport to celebrate America’s bestselling author with a special one-day-only offer on all adult, teen, and kids’ books by James Patterson.

At all Get Pop-Cultured events and throughout the month of July, customers can visit the NOOK Counter to enter for a chance to win a $1,000 Barnes & Noble Gift Card.
