Book Gallery

The Book Gallery was founded in 1995 in Greenville, Mississippi.  It evolved as a result of an interest in reading, and sharing our reads with the community, especially students. A book fair invite from a T. L. Weston High School student was accepted. The book fair was held at the school and it was successful. It sparked an interest in reading for many of the students. They shared their excitement with the presenters of the Book Fair. Afterwards the Book Gallery opened and has been in the area since, serving as conduit for Book Signings, Author Readings, Poets, and a place for cultural conversations.
