Books Can Take You Places (Off the Beaten Path): Atlanta

This year’s HPB calendar is full of recommendations for every booklover, audiophile and movie buff. Unfortunately, we could only feature 12 different cities in our 126fireworkscalendar, and there are so many more places with rich literary and musical heritages available for you to visit. Half Price Books is venturing into it’s 17th state and we’re excited to be opening our newest store in the Atlanta,Georgia area, so of course, we had to add it to our Books Can Take You Places series.

Atlanta is not only a beautiful place, but has also been the home of some great novelists, including Margaret Mitchell, Joel Chandler Harris and Flannery O’Connor as well as inspiration for several other novelists, screenwriters and composers.  If you are in the Atlanta area, we would like to invite you to come to the Great Opening of our East Cobb store on May 26. For those outside the area, here are a few ways to experience Atlanta without ever leaving home.
