Kate's blog that my favorite Ann Arbor bookstore, Afterwords, will close at the end of the month.
That's really sad news. It's the one bookstore in Ann Arbor where I have found so many bargains -- whether it was a book on gardening, insects, or photography. I have been going there for nearly as long as I have lived here -- nearly 25 years. I'm not sure when AW opened, but I suppose in the retail scheme of things, they have lasted a lot longer on Main street than many other stores. That still doesn't make it any easier to take. I will certainly miss buying photography books there that I usually don't see elsewhere.
