Like many local independent bookstores, A Cappella is more than just a retailer. Whether it's in the shop, at one of our many events, or online, we are committed to creating spaces in which great authors and the Atlanta community can come together to exchange new ideas, share a love of the written word, and further--as Colum McCann put it for our 25th anniversary book, A Cozy Infinity--the "great democracy [of] storytelling."

Occasionally, our store and our people make it into the larger media-sphere. You'll find links to those news items here.

Our thoughts are with all of our family, friends, colleagues, and customers right now. We are closely following all developing news on the COVID-19 outbreak and encourage everyone to follow the updated safety guidelines recommended by the CDC and the World Health Organization, which are available online.

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, in order to honor the updated social distancing guidelines presented by the CDC, A Cappella Books' Inman Park store is closed and all author programs are postponed until further notice.

You may still shop our inventory via the online store. We will deliver purchases Monday through Saturday for free to customers in most Atlanta in-town neighborhoods who spend $20 or more. All other orders will be shipped promptly. 

While we encourage everyone to stay at home, if you are running errands and would like to retrieve your order from our store, you may pick up curbside from 10 am - 6 pm. Call us when you arrive.


We are now closed on Sunday. Online orders placed on Sunday will go out the following Monday.

If you don't see what you're looking for on our website, please call or email. We can provide most titles within a week. 
To redeem credit, A Cappella Choir members and gift card holders should place orders by phone or email. 
Book club members must order their monthly selections by phone to receive their 10% discount.

We know many of you will be looking for book recommendations, so stay tuned on our social media channels and sign up for our newsletter for selections from our staff and book club members, as well as information on our latest arrivals. 

We continue daily to add new, used and out-of-print books to our inventory, but until further notice, all buying and trading of used books is suspended until we reopen.   

If you need to come by the store for any reason, please call us to set a time. Some employees will be working at the store while we are closed to the public.

As always, feel free to reach out to us by phone (404-681-5128) or by email ( if you have any questions or need assistance with a purchase.
