WaterCooler heads to Parnassus Books to Celebrate the Written Word

In advance of the 24th Annual Southern Festival of Books, A Celebration of the Written Word, our next WaterCooler is for book lovers and entrepreneurs. We’ll hear Parnassus Books co-owners Karen Hayes and Ann Patchett explain how their independent bookstore has both opened and prospered in the middle of the Great Recession, while national book chains have been going out of business. We’ll also hear Serenity Gerbman, Director of Literature and Language Programs of Humanities Tennessee, talk about opportunities for readers in Nashville, including the Southern Festival of Books.

Doors Open at 5:30*
