Shadow and Tripod
Jen, Tripod, and Shadow had a party!
February 23

Lickin' Good Whole Pet Foods logoDid you know February 23rd was International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day? Jen and Tripod brought the newest canine member of the Geraedts’ household, a sheepdog mix named Shadow. Beagle Book's patrons were invited, with or without dogs (on leashes). Our friends from Lickin’ Good Whole Pet Foods were on hand too, with treats/prizes. Lickin’ Good is one of our favorite downtown businesses—it’s where Tripod and Shadow get their grooming done and stock up on treats!

Karen Babine was in the store 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.

We were honored to welcome Karen and her new book home!

We do inventory the first Sunday after the new year. Family, staff, and volunteers combine to get everything counted and have some fun. We provide lunch and give volunteers the staff discount for the day.
