Going “Up North”
The Straight River Book Tour is going Up North to Park Rapids MN and Hackensack MN next weekend. This will be the farthest from home I’ve gone since attending the NAC Art and Book Festival in Hackensack last year at this time.
First stop is Friday, Aug 9, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery in beautiful Park Rapids, MN–an Up North Resort town that epitomizes lake country in this beautiful state. I’m excited to visit a new bookstore (for me). Judging by the email communication between me and the store owner, Sally and her manager, Jen, they’re equally excited to host me. I’m sure I’ll have a great time. I hope to sell lots of signed books and meet some wonderful readers in the northern part of the state.
Saturday, Aug. 10 is the 24th annual Northwoods Arts Council’s Art & Book Festival in downtown Hackensack. That runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. It was a blast last year. I was in the same room with more than 30 talented authors and met another group of avid book lovers.
If you’re up in that area next weekend or will be passing through on your way farther Up North, stop in at whatever location suits your schedule and pick up the perfect read for lounging on the beach or sitting on the cabin deck or screen porch. I’d love to meet you.
