Spring Refresh

Spring is a time to refresh—plant your garden, spruce up your home and wardrobe, buy a new book—and Park Rapids businesses are sponsoring “Spring Refresh.” Participating businesses will have a variety of promotions and special offers, along with a passport and great prizes. Details will soon be appearing on each store’s Facebook page. Our Spring Refresh events are listed below.

Nickolas Butler
June 1, 5:00 pm at Bella Caffé

We’re thrilled to be hosting an event with Nick Butler in June! Nick’s previous novels, Shotgun Lovesongs and The Hearts of Men, were favorites of staff and customers alike, and we know you’ll love his latest book, too. Little Faith is the story of Lyle and Peg Hovde, who live a quiet life in rural Wisconsin. Years earlier, their infant son died, creating a quiet crisis of faith for Lyle. Life went on, and soon he and Peg adopted a daughter, Shiloh, who left home as soon as she could. She’s back now, with a five year old son, Isaac. Lyle and Peg dote on the boy and have settled into a comfortable routine with him and his mother.However, Shiloh becomes infatuated with the leader of an almost cultish church in nearby La Crosse. Her parents worry about her, and particularly about Isaac, whom they think Shiloh’s boyfriend is using for his own purposes. The book is beautifully written and the characters dealing with issues of faith, doubt, and family seem like people you might know.

This event will be next door, in the atrium at Bella Caffé. Join us as we welcome Nick to Park Rapids and hear about Little Faith.

Phyllis Root and Betsy Bowen
June 29, 1:00

Phyllis Root and Betsy Bowen will be at the store with their new book, The Lost Forest. The picture book tells the story of a lucky surveying error that preserved 144 acres of old-growth red and white pine in northern Minnesota. With gentle humor, Phyllis Root takes readers deep into a stand of virgin pine, one of the last and largest in the state, where U.S. history and natural history meet. With the help of Betsy Bowen’s finely observed and beautiful illustrations, she shows us all the life that can be found in the Lost Forest. We’ll also have other books by Root and Bowen.

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.
