2019 Books in the Woods

04/04/2019 (All day)

Join us for a fun-filled 3-1/2 days (Thursday, April 4th - Sunday, April 7th) discussing books, enjoying outside activities, good food and new friends! Call the Gunflint Lodge to make your reservations early as discussion sign-ups are prioritized by registration date: (800) 328-3325. Visit https://www.gunflint.com/books-in-the-woods/ for more information.

We are delighted to announce that Mindy Mejia and Gretchen Anthony are our featured authors for 2019. We co-sponsor this annual weekend event with The Gunflint Lodge. Every year, we invite two authors to be our featured guests, and we provide a reading list of books (chosen by the guest authors and the staff at Valley Bookseller). During the event, guests can choose among a variety of facilitated discussions covering the books on the reading list, and in the late afternoon, attend a presentation and book signing with the featured authors.
