A long-time favorite of Memphis readers, the small, local chain of Davis-Kidd bookstores is a book lover's haven, with a staff that can locate the most obscure reference in a flash, a cozy seating area for reading, and a selection of books reflecting a real appreciation for the written word. Readings and book signings by renowned artists such as Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes, draw readers from all around the Mid-South area.Special features at Davis-Kidd include a free gift-wrapping service and a full-scale restaurant, Bronte's, instead of the usual coffee bar.
Davis-Kidd Booksellers is a wonderful bookstore with something for everyone. Just step inside and see for yourself. as a new author from NYC, this wonderful bookstores is kind enough to have all 3 of my books available to be ordered & picked up from the store. I want to take this time to say thank you to Davis-Kidd and to advertise them on my facebook wall. If you leave in or nearby Memphis, please
keep this store in mind, heart and soul. love irene brodsky
I was/am very disappointed with the restrictions levied around book signings here. "No photographs and no personalization of books." I just attended a book signing with Hampton Sides in Taos, NM And another with Homer Hickum at The Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, WV. They could not have been more gracious or accommodating. Homer and his wife personally greeted hundreds of admirers in spite of the fact they they had flown directly from Italy that morning and he had given a 45 talk with Q&A before signing books.
I have eaten at DK many times, mainly for the atmosphere. The food is pricey and merely OK. There are plenty of places to go with better food and better customer care.
Davis Kidd is a good bookstore, it's a little over priced but, if you go to their restraunt it is the worst!!!!! The children's food is a rip off and very overpriced! But the atmosphere is fantastic and it's very, very coxy and a great place to go to.
D-K's is the perfect place to spend an evening. Warm walls, comfortable chairs, large selection of books, mags,travel aids, music and kid's stuff. If it is in book form, then the staff can find it, calmly and fairly quickly. If not, on the shelves, then on their amazing computer system. There are gifts and cards and calendars and book signings. Oh, did I mention Bronte's cafe? As I said, you go in to "quickly" pick up something or to meet a friend and end up being informed that the store will be closing in 20 minutes. The food and coffees,teas,beer have an unique character and wonderful taste.
So as I said, D-K's is a time warp, a wonderful place between reality and dreaming. The bookstore between dimensions where you will repeatedly escape to , especially on dark, cold rainy days.
Give yourself,friends and family a treat and slip away for a vacation.
We went primarily for the children's dept. and were very pleased with the variety of games, crafts, activities, and wonderful books they have. (They even have the Rub-A-Dub Fun in the Tub stuff!) So much more than just books!! Be sure you give yourself enough time to see and enjoy this store. 2 hours flew by for us! The staff were polite and helpful, and our afternoon snack at Bronte's was really nice, too. Enjoy!
