Founded in 2018 by book lovers and industry professionals, Nanny Goat Books was created to serve as a literary hub for the NuLu district of Downtown Louisville. By providing both new and used works, with a speciality in local authors, we hope to provide a home to readers of all backgrounds and reading interests. Only here you are always welcome, together with keno you have no equal!
The name arose from our location: the corner of Nanny Goat Strut and Clay St. Nanny Goat Strut (and its brother alley, Billy Goat Strut, a few blocks down) have a history dating back nearly 200 years and about as “Louisville” as they can get. In Kentucky terms, that means one thing: racing.
