Closing Pages

After thirty years, one of Toronto’s most legendary independent bookstores will close its doors for good in only a few more hours. At Pages Books and Magazines, customers are scouring the almost bare shelves looking for an excuse to make one more purchase.
Tonight the store will be open late—last we heard, a good bit past 10 p.m.—hosting an informal goodbye and letting people take one last look around and share their own stories. On September 8, the Gladstone will host a tribute to the store and its proprietor, Marc Glassman, “Afterword: A Celebration Of 30 Years.”
