A Couple Lessons in Connection


When was the last time you put pen to paper to express thanks, congratulations, or just tell someone that you miss them? Our modern world offers us so many convenient ways to connect, but nothing will ever replace the personal touch of a handwritten note. 

Kate WigginsThere's still time to grab tickets for The Art of the Handwritten Note - a workshop with Kate Wiggins on Sunday, March 10th from 2pm-4pm. Tickets are $12.00 and include your choice of two cards from Country Bookshelf. Participants will receive 10% off additional cards, stationery, and pens from 1:00 to 5:00 on the day of the event. This workshop will include discussion and brainstorming; most of the time will be dedicated to cozy, undistracted writing. Give us a call, or stop by the store to reserve your spot, space is limited!

David TreuerThe erudition continues with New York Times best-selling Ojibwe author David Treuer. David will be sharing his most recent book The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee in a not-to-be-missed reading and signing on Tuesday, March 12th at 6pm. This powerful counter-narrative cum anthropological treatise, melds history with reportage and memoir, examining the events that have shaded and colored indigenous life in the modern era. The New York Times calls Heartbeat “an informed, moving and kaleidoscopic portrait of ‘Indian survival, resilience, adaptability, pride and place in modern life.’ Rarely has a single volume in Native American history attempted such comprehensiveness.”

Be sure to grab your copy--and seat--early on Tuesday!
