A Wake for Kate

Last month I reported that Kate the Great's Book Emporium is closing on July 25. Tomorrow the bookshop is having a wake, of sorts, with live music and readings, beginning at 7pm. Plus, all remaining books now are priced from $1-3. So stop by tomorrow to bid farewell to a plucky indie bookstore that, unfortunately, didn't survive. Kate the Great's Book Emporium. 5550 N. Broadway Ave.
