A Neighborhood Bookstore in the Heart of Atlanta
FALL IS COMING...!?!?!?!
Sure, it's over 90 and humid every day. Sure, we're all living in shorts and flip flops. Sure, we sweat profusely with every step. BUT it's football season, school is in sesh, and Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, so you know Fall is on it's way...! Grab a book and plan ahead for getting cozy with a sweater and a great read!

We are fortunate to have several local artists exhibiting their work in our store. This issue's focused artist is Jonathan McKown. Jonathan's work features photographs of his travels around the world, to 37 countries and 46 US states. Jonathan says that he "wanted to show my friends and family what 'sitting on go' actually looked like. I wanted to show them that it involved very little sitting. And, I wanted to share exactly what I saw: the breathtaking landscapes, the curious creatures, and my encounters with strangers."

Jonathan's website, and his Instagram page feature his many works; several of his pieces are displayed in our store. 
Not only can you enjoy Jonthans's work when visiting the store, all featured pieces are available for sale in the store. Prices are listed beneath the displayed pieces hanging in the store, or you can inquire at the check out counter for details.
