Parnassus Books Image

Hours: 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Sunday

A great bookstore doesn’t just peddle books. It starts conversations, launches friendships, changes lives, transmits the passions of its staff, and anchors a community’s intellectual life. Thanks in large part to Karen Hayes’ business savvy and Niki Coffman’s enthusiasm — and of course, standard-bearer Ann Patchett, who carries the flag at the ramparts where active curiosity does battle with dull indifference — Parnassus has given Nashville that most dangerous of portals: a gateway to ideas.
