Emma Rodgers of Black Images Book Bazaar in Dallas, Texas, told BIBR that her retail store would close at the end of December 2006.
"We are thankful for the authors who remained faithful and continued to visit Black Images after becoming national best-selling authors" Rodgers told BIBR.
Rodgers said the business would continue with some author events around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, corporate sales and other activities. She has owned the store with copartner Ashira Tosihwe, since 1977. The shop was known for its events, support of black authors and activism in the book world. A black romance writers' award is named for Rodgers, and she has long been an organizer in the annual African American Booksellers Conference at BookExpo America.
