We’re publishing a collection by 25 (mostly) Atlanta writers on their own experiences with and thoughts about books and bookstores. Pulitzer Prize winner Hank Klibanoff, The Southern Foodways Alliance’s John T. Edge, Atlanta favorite Hollis Gillespie, Townsend Prize Winner Thomas Mullen, Lillian Smith Award winner Anthony Grooms and other local notables including Susan Rebecca White, Jessica Handler, and Charles McNair are among the authors featured in the book.
On Friday, December 5 beginning at 6 p.m. we’re throwing a book release party and anniversary celebration at two locations where we have enjoyed many of the most exciting times in our history. Festivities begin at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, where a number of the contributing writers will be on hand to sign the new book as well as their own titles. Afterwards, we head to Manuel’s Tavern for food and drinks, trading stories from the past quarter century and looking ahead to what may come.
