About our Holiday Event

Come enjoy a truly unique holiday shopping experience at the Historic Warden’s House Museum while meeting local authors, sipping coffee, and enjoying live holiday songs provided by Mary Taylor Allen’s local student musicians at our annual open house and book sale. Not to mention that some of our most popular titles will be up to 50% off their normal price!

We’re excited to have three new authors joining us. Illustrator Carrie Hartman will have a variety of her children’s books on hand including the newest, “Where Are All The Minnesotans?” which celebrates how we make the most out of the wintry months. Carolyn Porter spent years researching the person behind the penned letters she picked up at an antique store in Stillwater, “Marcel’s Letters” is the incredible story of Carolyn’s search to uncover the mystery of one man’s fate during WWII, seeking answers across Germany, France, and the United States. Mary Schier’s new book “The Northern Gardener: From Apples to Zinnias ,” provides insight into gardening traditions, time-tested how-to advice for gardening in the North, and a peek into Minnesota’s horticultural history.

This year’s other featured authors Dustyn Dubuque (How Newell Burch Survived Andersonville Prison, Among the First to Arrive and Last to Leave), Robert and Nancy Goodman (In Their Own Words, The Last Rafter, and more), Pam, Robin, & Nancy (Holiday Cookie Creation), and Brent Peterson (Stillwater: The Next Generation) will also be on hand to chat about their newest works and sign copies of their books. This is the perfect personalized gift for the lover of history in your life!
