Kepler's Closes

Sad day in Menlo Park: Kepler's Books is going out of business. The news just came out today.

This is such a shame. We need independent bookstores, but they're dying away.

This is one reason I'm so determined to make sure that EVDB does a fantastic job indexing all bookstore- and author-related events. If more people knew about these types of events, more people would attend them, and, I believe, they'd buy more books there. It's a win for the author, the reader, the publisher, and the bookstore. And EVDB.
