Metropolis Books, will be closing at the end of this month. I’m heartbroken. My friend Julie owns the store. She was a friend before this wonderful gathering place in one of downtown’s up-and-coming neighborhoods began, she was a friend during its lifetime and she’ll be a friend after. But I’ll miss the store with its cheery pumpkin-colored walls and great art.
I went to visit on Friday along with writer pal, Eric Stone. We took this photo, Eric and I were interviewed for a documentary about the store’s closing and then we bought some books. You should go buy some books, too. The whole stock is going at a huge discount. Tell Julie I sent you and that we’ll miss her something awful.
