Storyline

In August 2012, Larry McMurtry's Booked Up Inc. auctioned over 300,000 antiquarian books shelved within the bookstore's four large buildings in the small oil patch town of Archer City, Texas. This vast collection of American bookshops past, personally curated by Mr. McMurtry over more than forty years, held the acquisition of some twenty-six bookshops and more than two hundred personal libraries. Despite the sweltering Texas heat, dealers, collectors, teachers, working-class citizens, lookers-on and local folks queued up outside Building Four with the hopes of being part of "The Last Book Sale". As attendees stepped through the doors for the pre-auction viewing, they were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of books that greeted them: "Where do I even start?" they asked themselves. This Film is the story of those Books. Written by Mathew Provost
