We spent most of the day visiting book stores.
Our first stop was Southland Books & Cafe in Maryville, TN, where we had a delightful visit with Lisa Misosky. The store is close to the park so I hope there will be some interest in Big Creek there. Lisa thought there would be. She took ten copies. The store and cafe both look interesting and I might like to stop in again for the cafe on our next trip. They are currently in the midst of expanding into the adjacent store space.
So, you Maryville folks, stop in and get your copy of Big Creek. I would recommend a coffee and pastry while you are there.
Next, we visited a number of establishments in Knoxville. I need to follow up with several, but Union Ave Books took three copies on consignment. The classic downtown book store is small and they don’t have room for too many copies.
We have never visited downtown Knoxville. It looks to be worth another look. It is historic and home to the University of Tennessee.
Our last stop, on the way home really, was Tennessee RV Supercenter. Most RV stores have a small book section so it was worth a shot. Denise Harrell was interested in carrying it but wanted to check with her co-manager before making a purchase. I gave her a copy of the book for review.
