If you don’t live under a rock, I’m sure you know that a very large number of Borders bookstores have closed in the past several months. One of the targeted stores was the Borders located in East Liberty (in Pittsburgh, PA, if you’re not from around these parts). A local woman came up with the idea to open a temporary bookstore in the empty space that would focus primarily on local authors or indie authors rather than the mainsteam authors and books that the “big box” bookstores carry. The store will also hold evening events such as documentary screenings, author readings, et cetera.
Check out this article that was in the Pittsburgh City Paper today about Fleeting Pages: Old East Liberty Borders gets new life as a pop-up bookstore. The new store opens on May 7th and will be open for four weeks. Will you be there? I definitely want to check it out! This is a really interesting concept and I hope she finds much success in those few weeks. Maybe that will lead to something else in the future, like a permanent storefront somewhere.
