The Book Lady BookstoreBegun in 1978 by the inimitable Anita Raskin who passed away in 2002, the expanded Book Lady Bookstore continues to offer a broad range of gently used, rare, out-of-print and also new books. Joni Saxon-Giusti, who worked at The Book Lady with Mrs. Raskin for many years, purchased and revamped the business in 2002 and has overseen the exponential growth and relocation of the shop.

We are proud to be still serving our community, and are very active with Savannah's Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home, the Poetry Society of Georgia, the Southern Poetry Review, Georgia Historical Society, Wormsloe Foundation, Seersucker Live, and the annual Savannah Book Festival. So if you don't see us in the shop, you'll probably see us selling books somewhere around town!
