The Detroit-area’s largest used book and media sale, Bookstock returns this year to Laurel Park Place in Livonia after a two-year COVID-related hiatus. The event benefits literacy and education projects in Southeast Michigan and will feature more than 400,000 used books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl records and more for sale. Leftover Bookstock items are donated to area nonprofits and charities in the community.
