Thank you for putting up with construction in front of the store for months! The project is finally done! We’re happy with the way it looks and grateful that the wind no longer throws our front door against the railing.
Kevin Cannon, who does the artwork for the Midwest Indie Bookstore Roadmap, has updated the image for Beagle and Wolf.
It will be in next year’s edition of the map, but we thought you’d enjoy seeing his work in progress. And if you don’t have this year’s copy of the Roadmap, pick one up the next time you’re in the store. They’re free!
As a result of recent guidance from the CDC and Governor Walz, we’ve instituted these changes in the store:
Wearing a mask is no longer mandatory. We do expect that people who are not fully vaccinated, or are at risk, or living in a household with persons at risk will continue to mask.
We’ve removed our social distancing reminders and no longer limit the number of people who can be in the store.
We’ve polled members of our book groups, and all groups will resume meeting in the store.
Beginning June 1, our hours will be:
Sunday 10:00 to 4:00
Monday to Friday 9:00 to 6:00
Saturday 9:00 to 5:00
As soon as the state-wide social distancing mandate was rescinded, we began scheduling author events! (Our last one was March 2020 which seems like a lifetime ago!) We hope to have such events most Saturdays during the summer, generally 1:00 to 3:00.
June 12, 1:00 to 3:00
Nathan Jorgenson will be signing copies of his latest book, Contrapasso, as well as his earlier books, Waiting for White Horses, A Crooked Number, and The Mulligan.

Celebrating 20 Years!
We’ll draw a name to win this month’s bag of books and bookish swag! It’s part of our celebration of our 20th year! Enter the drawing every time you’re in the store, no purchase necessary. If you can’t get in, email firstname.lastname@example.org to enter. These are the only two ways to enter the drawing. (Note: prize bags must be picked up as we are unable to mail them. We will hold them, however.)

June 26, 1:00 to 3:00
David Ralph Johnson will be here to sign copies of Grand View.
