Our store is housed in a beautiful 125-year-old brick building on Central Avenue in West Duluth. In the summer of 2016, with the help of family and friends, we began demolition, and then did major renovation -- exposed brick walls, restored original hardwood floors, and installed new systems -- to make the space comfortable and inviting. In this slide show, see the stages of the construction to make the bookstore a reality.
Grand Opening Book Fair
We held our Grand Opening on Sept. 16, 2017. A community book fair in our large parking lot brought local authors and publishers together. The featured speakers were Barton Sutter (Cold Comfort, My Father's War), Linda LeGarde Grover (Onigamiising: Seasons of an Ojibwe Year, The Sky Watched), Brian Freeman (Marathon, Jonathan Stride series) and Lorna Landvik (Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, Once in a Blue Moon Lodge). There was live music with Teague Alexy and Erik Barry, and food and lots of fun for all.
