Calling the looming closure of Cody’s Books on Telegraph Avenue a “wake-up call,” Councilmember Kriss Worthington has announced a community rally to save the celebrated bookstore and support Telegraph Avenue area businesses. 

The event, which he is calling “a wake-up, not a wake,” will be held at 7 p.m. June 8, at Trinity United Methodist Church, Bancroft Way and Dana Street. 

Pat Cody, who founded the original Cody’s Books with her husband Fred Cody, is helping to organize the event and will speak. Andy Ross, owner and president of Cody’s, will attend.
