Your new independent, locally owned and operated bookstore in McDonough, GA!

Story on the Square is a bookstore in McDonough, Ga., that is proud to offer new books for children and adults. We feature the hottest new fiction and a wide selection of non-fiction focusing on food, gardening, Southern history and culture. In the store, we have planned a calendar full of events for kids and adults. If you’ve been looking for book clubs near you, you’re in luck. Our book clubs are free to join and cover a wide variety of interest. We want to be your favorite bookstore in McDonough, Ga., to find the perfect gift that you can’t find anywhere else. Coming soon is The Rough Draft—a wine and beer bar tucked inside our store. Other bookstores in McDonough, Ga., don’t have that. We think a great book and the perfect draft or curated glass of wine is the best pairing for a relaxing evening at local bookstores. Grab a snack with your drink and head upstairs to our event space to enjoy music, art, or a featured author speaking about and signing his or her book.

We cannot wait to be your favorite bookstore in McDonough, Ga., to shop, drink, and hangout with your smart and charming friends!



We have secured a temporary store site at 13 Keys Ferry Street at the old Ward Drug Store on the south side of the square. We will have a fully functioning store until our permanent location is ready to open.
