Best-selling author Ann Patchett is opening a new bookstore in Nashville, Tennessee to “connect with true book lovers”. According to Karen Hayes, who has teamed with Patchett to sell books: “There are times where even when it’s convenient to read on your e-reader, you want that printed word, you want that piece of art. You want it on your shelf. You want it in your hands. It just means something so special.” Patchett will be joining the ranks of several other well-known authors who own bookstores: Larry McMurtry, Louise Erdrich, and Garrison Keillor.
