Paris: sad news of literary closings

Jump to last reply

I read of this a few weeks ago but Adrian Leeds in her newsletter confirmed it today. Both were fun places to be when a writer you like made an appearance.
"1. Penelope Fletcher, owner of The Red Wheelbarrow, has put her shop up for sale "fonds de commerce (the location, the lease, the goodwill, the clientele and the name, but excluding debts). Inventory available on consignment or at one-third value. Inquiries can be made to Penelope Fletcher, The Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore, 22 rue Saint Paul, 75004 Paris, +33 (0)1.48.04.75.08.

2. The Village Voice Bookstore will close its doors on July 31, 2012. Odile Hellier, owner, wrote: "With our warmest thanks for having contributed to the cultural life of The Village Voice Bookshop and to its success." No, Odile, we thank YOU, for bringing us so much joy for so many years. The Village Voice and you will be sadly missed."
This is sad news, They were like landmarks.
