Buffalo Street Books is pretty busy for a place scheduled to shut.
Ithaca's oldest independent book store announced in February that failing business would force it to close.
Immediately, Ithaca rallied around an effort to save the store. Over $200,000 has been pledged for that goal. Details are available at http://www.buffalostreetbooks.com./
Meanwhile, the store has notable readings scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
Monday's is by Leslie Daniels, from her book "Cleaning Nabokov's House." The reading will take place at 6:30 p.m., not at the store, but at the Kitchen Theater, now located on W. State Street.
Tuesday's is by Tea Obreht, from her book "The Tiger's Wife." It is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the bookstore, but we wonder if it might have to be moved somewhere bigger. Ms. Obreht was featured this morning on "Weekend Edition" on National Public Radio.
