Allen EskensCustomer favorite Allen Eskens, author of The Life We Bury, will be here! He’ll talk about his new book, Nothing More Dangerous, answer questions, and sign books. Allen is an informative and humorous speaker and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear him. (His talk will be different from the one he gave at the library last spring.) We’ll have his new book as well as his earlier titles on hand.


Lynette Reini-Grandell and Venus de MarsTrouble:
A Glam-Punk Trans-Rock Love Story
December 13, 6:30

Minnesota State Arts BoardJoin us for an exciting after-hours event for writers and others! 

Lynette Reini-Grandell and her spouse of 36 years, Venus de Mars, will read from and discuss the process of writing separate memoirs on their parallel journeys through the ups and down of art, love, rock and roll. They will share writing strategies that have helped them move forward in creating book-length manuscripts and how they've coped with dredging up the sometimes painful past. Discussion will follow. Lynette Reini-Grandell and Venus de Mars are fiscal year 2019 recipients of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Lynette, the granddaughter of Park Rapids' Harvey Konshok, is a frequent visitor to the area.
We carry her poetry collection, Wild Verge, in the store.

Christopher Ingraham

December 14, 1PM

Christopher IngrahamIngraham wrote a story for the Washington Post calling Red Lake Falls, Minnesota “the worst place to live in America.” And guess what? After a visit there, he decided to uproot his life and move his family to Red Lake Falls. The book is a “hilarious, charming, and candid story” of his experiences. A perfect gift for those who treasure ‘up north’ living—or those who should!

Ingraham will talk followed by a signing.

About our Book Signing Policy

We sponsor a robust schedule of events—this summer alone, we’ve brought over 50 authors to Park Rapids. This is possible only because of the purchases of our customers. For that reason, we ask that only books purchased from us be presented for signing at events. We appreciate your cooperation with this policy.
