The building Lion Around Books occupies has been sold. As the new owner will be using the space I currently occupy, the Lion will be closed by June 30th 2015. Exactly what comes next for the Lion is uncertain, but for now I don’t see reopening somewhere else in its current form. Its been 15 years since I opened and I enjoyed the ride. I plan to take the summer off and figure out what comes next.

Between the end of April and mid June, the Lion will be have on sale books, artwork, collectibles, and ephemera. All fixtures, furniture, bookcases, and anything else not nailed down will also be for sale until the last week in June.

Details will be on Facebook, web page or at the store.

I wish to thank all my customers, who I will miss greatly, friends and family who have supported the Lion all these years.

Thank you.
