Then one day, Bud decides to take one last trip, just to see what has become of his beloved Whistle Stop. In so doing, he discovers new friends, as well as surprises about Idgie’s life, about Ninny Threadgoode and other beloved Fannie Flagg characters, and about the town itself. He also sets off a series of events, both touching and inspiring, which change his life and the lives of his daughter and many others. Could these events all be just coincidences? Or something else? And can you really go home again?
As COVID continues to be with us, a few guidelines are necessary. MASKS ARE REQUIRED for everyone over two years old. Bookstore staff are wearing masks as well, and we have extras available if you need one.
We have hand sanitizer available, and wipe down high-touch areas frequently.
If anyone wants to sign up for contact tracing, you may leave your phone number and date of visit with us.
Curbside pickup is still available; just follow the instructions posted in the front windows.
We have started hosting author events, and have more scheduled for the fall, but are keeping a close watch on numbers and guidelines. If you are planning to attend an event, please check our “Events” page first to make sure it is still scheduled. Or call us at 515-279-5400.
As always, thank you for your patience – this has been difficult for us all!
