Here’s a sad quote from Lonergan: “We have some wonderful memories of standing room only author events and costume parties, and of course, our midnight Harry Potter events.

We want to thank you for your committed patronage, for believing in an independent bookstore when you could get your books cheaper at Walmart.” (Via Publishers Lunch)
