If you want music at Third Place Books, let the landlord know.
Tori Glossip, the new Senior General Manager for Madison Marquette, says that she wants to hear from the community.
Madison Marquette, the owner of the Town Center mall in Lake Forest Park, has taken over operation of the Food Court in a new lease effective May 17. The Friday and Saturday night music, previously managed by Third Place Books, will be subsidized by Madison Marquette only through the end of May.
"It's a large cost," said Glossip, "40-60 thousand dollar per year. We are looking at other events suitable for the community. But we will thoroughly investigate," she said, "and we do want ideas from the community."
There are no plans to change the food options and the other events are all run by Friends of Third Place Books and will continue.
