“It has so much heritage and history, and you can feel it in the floorboards and the atmosphere inside,” Kingsbury said of Landmark Booksellers. “I went in and I just loved the charm, history and smell of all of the old books.”
Landmark Booksellers was the inspiration for Karen Kingsbury’s book The Bridge that was also released as a Hallmark movie.
After visiting Landmark Booksellers, Franklin resident Karen Kingsbury was inspired to write her New York Times bestselling book The Bridge, 2012. A heartwarming inspirational story based on a bookstore in Franklin, the husband and wife who own it, a young couple from Belmont University who discover love, and a flood that brings them all together. An award winning, two part Hallmark Movie was soon to follow staring Ted McGinley and Faith Ford.
