A Silver Lining…

When we were in Nashville about a year ago, we discovered Davis-Kidd, a wonderful bookstore with one of the best children’s book sections I’ve ever seen. In fact, I wrote about how much my family enjoyed our time there and encouraged everyone I knew to visit if their travels took them to Nashville. 

I was incredibly sad to read in this morning’s New York Times that Davis-Kidd is closing – a victim of the 21st century. But wait. There’s good news. Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto and so many other wonderful novels, has come to the rescue and opened Parnassus, a new independent bookstore in Nashville.  Judging from the New York Times article, there is lots of enthusiasm and support for the new venture. Fingers crossed!

Here’s the link to today’s story:
