book coverIndependent Bookstore Day
August 29

More than mere stores, independent bookstores are community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

In a world of tweets, algorithms, and digital downloads, bookstores are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. And they are at your service.

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Oops, this year it was postponed to August 29! It will be different from previous years, and we’re still finalizing our plans. Watch our Facebook page for details, and plan to join us!

Rock Bottom Remainders album Hard Listening

Are you familiar with Rock Bottom Remainders?

Rock Bottom Remainders is a band made up of several of your favorite authors, including Stephen King, Dave Barry, and Amy Tan. Critics have said “they have one of the world’s highest ratios of noise to talent,” but that hasn’t stopped the group from releasing their first music video, in support of independent bookstores. You can hear it here.

Spring Retreat

Give yourself the gift of a day apart and join us for our annual Spring Retreat! We’ll be at the Jewel of the Northwoods, the B&B between Hubbard and Menahga, about 15 minutes from Park Rapids. We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch and lively conversation.


book coverOur theme will be “Why Do We Read?” and we’ll explore this question by reading and discussing two very different books.

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader is a collection of witty essays recounting a lifelong love affair with books and language.

book coverThe Librarian of Auschwitz is based on the experience of real-life Auschwitz prisoner Dita Kraus. This young adult book is the incredible story of a girl who risked her life to keep the magic of books alive during the Holocaust.

The cost of the retreat is $45, plus books. (If you purchase the books, we expect you to get them from us.) Registration materials are available at the store or by email. Contact us at 218-237-2665 or sally@beagleandwolf.com.

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.
