Looking ahead: We hope you'll join us on May 9 at Vanderbilt's Blair School of Music as author and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards discusses her new book, Make Trouble. Every ticket includes a copy of Make Trouble, and a portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit Planned Parenthood. Tickets and more details at parnassusbooks.net/event! #nashvilleevents #authorevents
Up on Musing today (link in bio) we have a new blog post from Ann! "It’s a little bit like wanting something to eat only to find that everything tastes like a bag of nickels." - Ann Patchett on reading books while writing a new one. (Yes, she's writing a new one!!) #parnassusmusing
Nashville parents - your little ones will willingly put on jackets and scarves to come to the weekly singalong storytime at Parnassus with Emily Arrow! Every Thursday at 4PM you can find @helloemilyarrow under the mural performing her original songs - and they're based on books! We'll be surprised if you don't sing along too.
Book-love, rendered in emojis?? We u, @nashvillepubtv! (Sound on for this one! )

Yep, the man at the bus stop next to you is in your book club. So are the women at the donut shop! Whether or not you consider yourself a foodie, if you live in the American South — or America, period — consider The Potlikker Papers by @johntedge essential reading for what it illuminates about our nation. And join us for #nashvillereads — the citywide book club that unites Nashville in reading the same book! Details in our profile link.

Give it up for Halley, who is determined to juggle these adorable potatoes we got to celebrate the picture book ROT: The Cutest in the World (about a mutant potato, of course) by Ben Clanton.

We knew kids liked books. We knew kids liked brightly colored vehicles with funny doors and windows. Still, we had no idea just how much kids would LOVE the Parnassus on Wheels bookmobile. We've been getting lots of questions from schools lately about how we can bring Peggy the book-bus on campus. Today on Musing (link in bio) you can find all of these answers and more! #parnassusmusing #parnassusonwheels #wherespeggy
