The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum
Just about mile from our store, The Carter Library and Carter Center have for many years been the venues where we have presented the most important topical, historical and literary authors to Atlanta audiences, including Pat Conroy, Salman Rushdie, Harry Belaftone, Al Franken, Sarah Vowell, Tom Brokaw, Candice Millard, Jon Meacham and Krista Tippett.
SCAD - Atlanta
SCAD's Ivy Hall Writers Series hosts a series of lectures and book signings with A Cappella Books both at the gorgeous mansion that houses the school's writing program, Ivy Hall, and at their main campus on Peachtree. If you haven't attended one of these programs, you've missed Bret Easton Ellis, William Gibson, Alexandra Styron, Andy Cohen and many others.
Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlatna (MJCCA)
In 2012, A Cappella became the official bookseller of the Book Festival of the MJCCA in Dunwoody, a fifteen-day literary and arts extravaganza, now in its 22nd year.

Past guests have included Pat Conroy, Michael Chabon, Annie Leibovitz, Larry King, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Emily Giffin, James Patterson, and R.L.

One of Atlanta's most celebrated restaurants and its chef/owner Linton Hopkins, winner of multiple James Beard Awards, host our most distinctive series of author readings, featuring fantastic food, wine and literature.
The Georgia Center for the Book
A Cappella has enjoyed a long relationship with this organization, housed in the Decatur Library, and dedicated to promoting books. Together we have hosted numerous author readings/signings.
The Ballroom Lounge
The historic bar beneath The Highland Inn has been home to many of our most memorable book parties with, among others, Nick Hornby, Karen Abbott, Irvine Welsh and Kevin Young.
This Atlanta institution is a famous hotspot for writers and political debate, making it a natural for A Cappella book signings. Howard Dean, the late, great Paul Hemphill, and Ben "Cooter" Jones are just a few of the notables whose books we've presented there.
Poetry at Tech
A Cappella is proud to be the long-time official bookseller for Poetry at Tech, which brings the finest names in poetry to Atlanta from within Georgia and all over the United States.
Literary Alliance of Metropolitan Atlanta (LAMA)
Literacy Alliance of Metropolitan Atlanta (LAMA) is a practical and innovative coalition that seeks to achieve 100% literacy among metro Atlanta's adults and families. The coalition hopes to increase public awareness about low-literacy as it is one of the root causes of poverty, un- and under-employment, homelessness, and poor health outcomes. We also provide a gateway to our member organizations as they focus to expand literacy programming in the Metropolitan Atlanta Area.
