Glenn Goldman, founder and owner of the West Hollywood Sunset Strip landmark, Book Soup, passed away on Saturday. Goldman, 58, died of pancreatic cancer just one day after announcing his intention to sell the store. Book Soup opened in 1975 and attracted an eclectic mix of customers. Book signings at the store were a long tradition. Just cruise by the window sometime and you will see a plethora of upcoming author (famous and not so much) signings. Gore Vidal, Robert Wagner, Anderson Cooper and (upcoming) Leslie Jordan just to name drop a bit. Although tight quarters you could still lose yourself in the over 60,000 titles. As the WeHo Walker I have long been supportive of our local businesses, especially the “Mom & Pops” and Book Soup is the ultimate M & P. If they didn’t have it, they would get it. Glenn will be missed but Book Soup remains. Check it out, you won’t regret it.
