Welcome Wordplay Writers and Guests. Stop by the shop where I have maps of the city and a nice collection of local history books. I have good advice, bad advice, and dangerous advice for all you out-of-towners. Don’t need a haircut? So what, stop by anyway… the shop is on the corner of 4th St. and 4th Ave. about three blocks North of the stage area behind The Loft.

The Seward History Group is proud to announce the second printing of “A People’s History of the Seward Neighborhood.” Our first printing is completely sold out and has been nominated for an award! I’m delighted to be a part of this community effort. Seven years of hard work with key support from the Minnesota Historical Society and the Hennepin County Library, Special Collections …. All profits return to the neighborhood group.
