This Iconic Bookstore In Nashville Is Worth The Trip
An iconic bookstore seems to be hard to find – where is there the perfect mash-up between community nostalgia and the musty smell of good stories? Whether you’re in the heart of Nashville or make your home in the suburbs outside of the city, this beautiful local bookstore is one of the best spots in Middle Tennessee. Take a look around, bring your dog, fall in love with something new.
Parnassus Books opened in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee, in the fall of 2011. It has since grown into one of the most beloved local watering holes in the city, attracting tourists and artists alike.
Parnassus touts itself as, "An Independent Bookstore for Independent People," and we couldn't agree more. From the deep-thinking tomes of contemporary and classic literature to the colorful pages of the children's corner, this sweet space is a true step away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.
The bookstore hosts hundreds of author events throughout the year, ranging from young adult appropriate to New York Times bestselling authors.
Shopping at Parnassus is not only an investment in your own Nashville experience, but a way to support a small local bookstore with your love of reading.
Have a question? Just ask the kind, friendly staff scattered throughout the store. The booksellers are incredibly intelligent, well-versed in both contemporary and classic literature, with a breadth of thought that spans the oceans of genre.
Whether you're attending an author event or reading the Parnassus online magazine, "Musing," there are multiple ways to get involved throughout the year, no matter where you are. Join the First Editions club if you're looking for a book subscription, or ParnassusNext for YA readers.
