Novelette is a brand new bookshop aiming to open up in the Nashville area late in 2021 or early 2022. The endeavor is spearheaded by Deezy Youngdahl and Jordan Tromblee; two names you may recognize if you’re a fan of Sad Baxter or Redheaded Stranger, respectively.
The shop aims to be carry a wide range of local authors, graphic novels and provide a safe space for folks of all different backgrounds. All told, it sounds like a very pleasant place to frequent and I, for one, would love to see the dream come alive.
On that note, the founders have started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds for launching the project. They’re looking for $25k and are off to a good start. That may sound like a lot of money or nowhere near enough, depending on what you think about the general expense of doing business. It sounds like an accomplishable goal to me.
