After being totally destroyed during Katrina, Pass Christian Books (MS) is reopening thanks to the generousity of a local woman, Martha Murphy, who is leasing affordable space to local businesses on the following conditions: "project tenants will pay minimum rent on a temporary basis, but must show they are trying to move back to the downtown area when space becomes available." Murphy wanted to "do something for the community".
Story from Bookselling This Week including pre- and post-Katrina pictures of the store.
