Another bookstore bites the dust

Ouch. The Barbara's Bookstore location at University Village closed on 1/8.

Per their website: "Barbara's UIC would like to thank everyone for their patronage over the years and we hope to see you at one of our five other Chicagoland bookstores (Macy's, Northwestern Hospital, Willis Tower, Burr Ridge and Glenview) or at one of the six O'Hare Airport bookstores."

That's a shame. The UIC location routinely hosted some pretty good author events, recently featuring the likes of Gerald Nicosia, Greg Palast, and Peter Orner.

I guess they can always sign books at O'Hare.
