November 23

The holiday season begins in Park Rapids on November 23! We’ll be open from 8:30 to 8:00 and will offer a 20% discount on any in-store book listed in our holiday catalog. (May not be combined with other offers.)
Stop in any time after noon for hot apple cider and Christmas cookies (baked by Mark Bridge, the Cottage Baker!)

The traditional downtown Yuletide Sampler will be 5:00 to 6:00—share in the smorgasbord by stopping in at participating downtown business for nibbles. The lighting of the Christmas tree on Main and the arrival of Santa Claus follow, with the program beginning at 6. Need to warm up afterwards? The hot apple cider at Beagle and Wolf will have you feeling toasty.

Hometown book launch!
January 12, 2019

Karen Babine will be in the store on Saturday, January 12 at 1:00 to read from and sign copies of her latest book, All the Wild Hungers.

The book is very personal, grounded firmly in Karen’s family, and the landscape where she grew up, with many references to the Park Rapids/Nevis area.

Karen BabineA few years ago, Babine’s mother was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosaracoma. This rare form of cancer “only” affects children under the age of ten, and appropriate treatment for a sixty-five year old woman wasn’t clear.

At the same time, Babine’s sister was pregnant with her third child. Karen  saw patterns all around: parallels between her sister’s pregnancy and their mother’s illness, connections between food and illness; and between cooking from scratch and making meaning from scratch. While the topic of the book is serious, it also contains humor. The book moves through the seasons of the year, as the family goes from fall to a bleak winter and into a spring of hope.

Join us as we welcome Karen and her new book home!

Thank you for respecting out policy!
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.
