Dear friends,

In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen upon incredibly hard financial times.  With the decline in our current economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue.  If we are unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will have to close its doors.
