We’re thrilled to announce our first virtual event: An Evening with Lin and Tom!
November 12 at 7:00 pm

Minnesota authors Lin Enger (Undiscovered Country and The High Divide) and Tom Maltman (The Night Birds and Little Wolves) both have new books out this fall! The books have similar settings—extremist religious groups in northern Minnesota—and we’re looking forward to welcoming them for a lively conversation. Lin’s latest book, American Gospel, will be released October 27. (See a review of the book and an interview with Lin in our October newsletter.) Tom’s book, The Land, will be released October 13. We’ll interview him and review the book in our November newsletter.

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.

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

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.
