I wanted to let you know that the much-beloved Book Eddy will soon be opening a North Knoxville location. The move was encouraged by the impending closure of the Henley Street Bridge (a four year closure), and will help to keep their doors open.
This is a great opportunity for the Book Eddy to continue serving as an integral part of downtown life, and to rub elbows with Mag Pies.
The new shop will be much smaller than the massive Chapman Highway location, and will have mostly used books from the humanities--think more literature and less Accounting for Dummies.
To boot, the new building was designed by Sanders Pace Architecture, the Knoxville firm responsible for many great designs throughout our city - Southeastern Glass, Nama and TVB, just to name a few.
Doors should open in November, so be sure to come check out their new home.
