'Five Charming Bookstores that Span the Southern States'

Author Patti Callahan Henry (The Bookshop at Water's End) shared "some of my favorite bookshop memories and the stores to which those memories are attached" with Signature, noting that bookstores "at their very best are sanctuaries, which means they are both sacred and also safe. Choosing a favorite bookshop is much like choosing a favorite child; it's not possible, as each has their own charm and flavor. Ah, but what is possible is choosing my favorite memories that are attached to bookshops."

Her picks included FoxTale Book Shoppe in Atlanta, Ga. ("often feels that FoxTale and I grew up together in this bookshop landscape"), Page and Palette in Fairhope, Ala. ("a mainstay and anchor in the community"), Alabama Booksmith in Birmingham, Ala. ("does what all lovely bookshops should do--create community"), Litchfield Books in Pawleys Island, S.C. ("changed the book tour world with their Movable Feast luncheons for authors") and Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe in Asheville, N.C. ("a place of peace where book lovers come to rest and to read").
