Gotham, Heritage Still Making News

- LATimes columnist Scott Timberg has a long, wistful essay about Heritage Bookshop in today's paper; he name-drops some of the store's more, eh, well-known clients, highlights some of the rare titles and editions that have come through the Weinstein's shop, and reports (at least it's the first time I've seen it) that "[t]he 12,000 reference texts that helped the brothers to assess rare books will go to UCLA's William Andrews Clark Memorial Library."

- Yesterday's Village Voice reported "something's cooking" at Gotham Book Mart; former employees report a settlement may be in the works between 87-year old owner Andreas Brown and his landlord. Michael Lieberman comments here. Previous posts on Gotham are here.
