Glenn Goldman of Book Soup

Glenn Goldman of Book Soup

We were all saddened to hear that Glenn Goldman of Book Soup passed away on January 3.

Playwright and screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz wrote an exceptional piece on Glenn for L.A. Weekly:

"The little store he made so carefully was as emblematic of L.A. as Shakespeare & Company is to Paris. The house accounts were perfect, old school ... It made book buying more glamorous, and if you were broke — possible. ...

He was able to devote vast space to art books, more than anyone else in the indie-bookstore scene. He had a special love for richly produced, lavishly printed photography books. And his curatorial skills expanded. Book Soup was the place for visiting and local authors to come to celebrate their latest."
