The St. Paul, MN bookstore is moving downtown, and as such will be the first independent bookstore in the city center in over a decade. The shop's current location--which is the former location of Garrison Keillor's Common Good Books before they moved in 2012--is a basement level storefront beneath a popular coffee shop. But the recent renaissance of downtown St. Paul was too much for the store's owners and managers, Sue Zumberge and David Unowksi, to pass up. The new location will be 6 West 5th Street, St. Paul MN 55102. The store will open at the new location by the first week of June.
Sister Wolf Books in Dorset and Beagle Books & Bindery in Park Rapids have officially combined to form Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery! After 20 wonderful years in Dorset, change was coming for the owners, Sally Wizik Wills & Bob Wills, and for both stores. With Bob retiring in May of 2015, the family decided to combine the stores in the Park Rapids location. The physical move was made in the fall of 2014, with lots of behind the scenes work over the winter. All programming from both stores will continue in the Park Rapids location. The grand re-opening of Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery will be celebrated Memorial Day week-end, 2015. More information and our new logo are available at our new website:www.beagleandwolf.com
