Quick Hits: Ann Patchett's Bookstore

Ann Patchett wrote an absolutely lovely article in The Atlantic magazine that describes how she came to own an independent bookstore in Nashville, Tennessee called Parnassus Books. It's a touching tale of foolhardy serendipity, but also one about writers, readers, and what bookstores mean for a community. Well worth reading. A version of the piece also appears in her new book of essays, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, which you can purchase online from Parnassus. Below is a short video by The Atlantic that gives you a peek into the bookstore.
