Haft promotes in television and newspapers advertisements for Crown Books, one of Dart's companies.Mr. Haft, 40, founded the Crown Books chain in 1977 and made it the nation's third-largest bookseller after Waldenbooks and Barnes & Noble, with reported sales of about $241 million. He was expected soon to succeed his 72-year-old father, Herbert H. Haft, as chairman and chief executive of the Dart Group.

"Sorry. " -- Eric Northman I think it's important to list the most frightening things about this crazy, muddled installment of "True Blood. " Ready? In descending order: 5. A child-like Eric killing Sookie's fairy godmother (apparently when this happens to fairies they turn into melting Nazi soldiers a la "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). Although it was hilarious when Sookie told him to stop and all he did was grin and say "Sorry. " 4. Marnie going all crazy cult-leader and pleading ("Pleeease")

Families are always fertile ground for novelists. With a little digging, even an average family turns out to be as filled with intrigue as the Borgias. Topping this early fall list are three books about families that are spectacularly beyond average. Caramelo (Knopf, 448 pages, $24) is a sprawling, raucous affair that weaves together several generations of la familia Reyes. This is Sandra Cisneros' first novel since 1985's The House on Mango Street. That book, told from a young Mexican-American girl's viewpoint, was elegant and simple.

REGINA Wright Bruce arrives from a distance of 42 years. She wears a smile of spiritual wonder. She stands in this throng of delighted people at the grand opening of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, and her voice carries through the place like an anthem. "Did you see my picture?" she asks. She is a retired Baltimore schoolteacher, and her voice rings out as if someone has just announced the first day of summer vacation. She belongs to history now. She takes you through this room and that, past images of Thurgood Marshall and Parren Mitchell, past Ethel Ennis and Cab Calloway, past Lenny Moore and Buddy Young, until she arrives at a huge photograph on a wall, in the spring of 1963, inside the place that used to be called the Baltimore City Jail.

WASHINGTON - President Bush, in a brief private ceremony yesterday in the Oval Office, signed into law legislation allowing the creation of a National Museum of African-American History and Culture as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The signing caps a turbulent, nearly century-long quest for such a museum and represents a significant victory for the legislators, business and civic leaders, artists and veterans who have championed the project over several generations. Despite a lack of fanfare and no public statement from Bush, backers of the museum said the atmosphere surrounding the event was heavy with emotion and historic significance.
