Save Bookman/Woman's Poetry Section


Nashville has precious few bookstores, but even fewer quality poetry sections. Parnassus Books fills a massive deficiency (contemporary, & regional), Barnes & Noble is nice (chain though it is, modern, & student-of-poetry oriented), McKay's is rad (some gems amid chaotic array), and Rhino Books is great (real versatility, but lacking zest). And now we lose the elegantly aged literary star of Hillsboro Village - BookMan/BookWoman

It's been a hard week, so let's save their poetry section!

I don't need to spout off about how this great city deserves the continued presence of great literature, and less of Nashville's PDA with apartment scaffolding & cranes.

BookMan/BookWoman intends to begin unloading their books this holiday season (now-ish!) at a 50% discounted rate, so we can almost literally save this entire section of the famed bookstore for half of the normal cost!

But we have to hurry - they intend to close their physical doors at the end of 2016! 

Every shiny penny will go directly toward picking up these books, transporting them to a communally accessible location (TBD), and their up-keeping!

We can keep this piece of Nashville from the abyss! 

Let's save BookMan/BookWoman's poetry section!
