Savannah, Georgia - October 23, 2013

I forgot to take a photo of the front of the bookstore we visited today
 but here is its business card...

Mostly a day of driving from St. Augustine to Savannah. We did stop in Brunswick, Georgia and stumbled across Hattie's Books which is located downtown. It is a clean, small independent bookstore with a nice selection of new and used books along with books by local Southern authors.

The store sponsors two book clubs. This month the Daytime Book Club is reading The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro. The Evening Book Club is reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Marcia is the owner of the shop and her assistant is Mr. Wiggles, a well-read schnauzer.

Although we only stopped for a quick visit, I found a sweet used copy of haiku poems by Basho that has black and white Japanese illustrations. Rose says it is a beautiful book and I must agree.
