Mission Statement:

Mt. Parnassus in Greek mythology is the home of literature, learning and music. We will be Nashville’s Parnassus by providing a refuge for Nashvillians of all ages who share in the love of the written word. We will partner with and support local writers and artists, businesses and institutions. We will strive to bring readers the best books in literature, non-fiction, children’s books, local interest and the arts in both printed and digital formats. We will provide venues for writers to connect with readers, and readers to connect with books. By doing this we hope to complement and add to the rich cultural character of the Athens of the South.

  • Lovely spot for shopping for books or just browsing. A book discussion was going on a book I had enjoyed. And bonus Ann Patchett was in the house. Support your local independent bookstores.  more »

  • Easy to browse in your area of interest. All staff members are omnivorous readers. Bookstore supports cultural life of Nashville! See their website or FB for current events and authors.
  • So glad to have a locally-owned bookstore. Appreciated the help of staffers (fellow readers), enjoyed the shopping crowd (fellow book-lovers), and stumbling upon the "Local Authors" section. A store that reminds us, in every way, why bookstores need to exist.
