Some of you have inquired about the future changes for West End Mall and our bookstore plans. At this time, we will continue serving the commUNITY until (or if) it closes. Afterwards, look out NW Atlanta! The funds you donate today will help us move into our future, new home.
We are GRATEFUL for your love
and continued support!
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. Some of you already know that we have been at the Mall West End since December 2018. We plan to still operate our "bookstore hub" there until it closes. Your donation will help us have the funds we need for our new home when it is time to move. We APPRECIATE your continued support! We look forward to sharing our Grand Opening date!
“If we’re going to solve the problems of the world, we have to learn how to talk to one another. Poetry is the language at its essence. It’s the bones and the skeleton of the language. It teaches you, if nothing else, how to choose your words.”
