McNeill Designs Toy and Game Store Spotlight of the Week: That Bookstore in Blytheville

August 10, 2011

That Bookstore in Blytheville  just might be Arkansas’s best-known bookstore! Detailed in The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, this is a wonderful bookstore — and so much more!

The store offers an incredible selection of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s literature in a vast 2,400 square foot space conveniently located right on Main Street. And, as a champion of literacy, the store also promotes reading among local schoolchildren. Children’s reading materials—plus educational toys and games like the You’ve been Sentenced! word game —are located in the homey back room, complete with a cozy stove and wooden floors.

This room also hosts reading groups, musical performances, and author signings and readings. Visiting authors actually sign their names on a series of wooden chairs! Among the hundreds of writers who have read or signed at That Bookstore in Blytheville are Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton, along with John Grisham, Jack Butler, Lewis Nordan, and Jennifer Paddock, and many, many more.

In an era of large and impersonal chain bookstores, That Bookstore in Blytheville continues to offer readers from northeastern Arkansas an intimate and vital cultural experience. But, if you are not from Arkansas, don’t despair! You can still visit That Bookstore in Blytheville through a new partnership with American Booksellers Association’s “IndieCommerce.” Simply CLICK HERE
