Parnassus Books is an independent bookstore located in Nashville, Tennessee. Co-owned by bestselling author Ann Patchett and publishing veteran Karen Hayes, Parnassus stocks the best selections of literature, non-fiction, children’s, local interests, and the arts. The store also boasts an extensive local author section.

In Greek mythology, Mount Parnassus was the home of literature, learning, and music. They are Nashville’s Parnassus, providing a refuge for Nashvillians of all ages who share in their love of the written word. They provide a venue for writers to connect with readers, and for readers to connect with books. In doing so, they strive to complement and contribute to the rich cultural character of Nashville, the Athens of the South.
