Final party at Dutton's

Friends, fans and employees of Dutton's Brentwood Bookstore will gather in the courtyard one last time this Sunday at 5 pm. The shelves already look rather sad, but the final clearance sale runs through April 30, when the store officially closes. First editions, specialty collectibles and other books are available "at nutsy prices," says the Dutton's website.
