Monday, June 28, Clarke will hold its last auction at its long-time warehouse space at the end of North Avenue in Larchmont (running parallel to the RR behind Palmer Avenue) and will soon move to 2372 Boston Post Road next to La Riserva.
"It’s a spectacular new place," says Tom Curran of Clarke Galleries.
If you are coming to the auction, mention "theLoop" for a free catalogue.
Then, there is one of our favorite bookstores, The Voracious Reader on Palmer Avenue. Owner Francine Lucidon is planning to bust on through the wall and expand into the now-empty storefront next door. There she will be serving food… "tea and crumpets and treats like that, really in the sprit of The Voracious Reader," she says.
By the way, Voracious is now donating 10 percent of its daily sales on the first Thursday of each month to a charity or non-profit chosen by you. E-mail your submissions explaining the worthiness and need of your cause. If your entry is chosen, this Books for Good program will take care of the donation.
