Making Space

By Myrna CG Mibus / February 7, 2017

As most of you know, 2016 was a tough year for me with my Dad passing away and other things. I needed to concentrate on my family so I put my writing on a back burner. I’m okay with my decision to not write much last year. That said, things have settled down enough now…

Write on through.

By Myrna CG Mibus / October 9, 2016

I just got back from a writing retreat weekend led by the fabulous Kate Hopper of Motherhood and Words. It was a weekend away that I really needed – one filled with rest, reading, writing and wonderful women friends. I’m so grateful I was able to attend. It was meant to be, I think. Kate’s…

Chocolate Cake – Life from Scratch

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 21, 2016

A few months ago, I finished reading Life from Scratch: a memoir of food, family, and forgiveness by Sasha Martin, blogger at Global Table Adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed the book so I wrote a mini-review to recommend Life from Scratch to our customers at Content Bookstore. Among other things, I wrote that Life from Scratch is “a delicious read, with recipes!” Each chapter of the book…

Locally Laid – a Plucky Memoir

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 15, 2016

Back in the beginning of August, Content Bookstore had an event with Lucie Amundsen, author of the memoir Locally Laid: How We Built a Plucky, Industry-Changing Egg Farm from Scratch. I was excited to be working at Content that night as I was really curious about the book and wanted to learn more of how Lucie and her husband, Jason, started up an egg farm in…

Fountain Pen Find

By Myrna CG Mibus / September 6, 2016

When it comes to writing, I prefer to use fountain pens. I got hooked on using them about 20 years ago when I was attending University of St. Thomas. One of my English professors talked about how important it was to him to use a certain kind of writing instrument in his writing practice and…

It’s August now, almost September

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 29, 2016

It’s August now, almost September, and I have not written a blog post in four months. A lot has happened in this short period of time. My Dad passed away in July and while I am glad he is now at peace the weeks leading up to his death were some of the worst. There’s way more…

A poem a day in April

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 28, 2016

A friend of mine, poet and writer Leslie Schultz, has been posting a new poem to her Winona Media blog every day this month. I’ve been reading many of the poems but didn’t know exactly why Leslie was writing a poem each day. I simply figured she came up with a clever 30 days of…

Thanks for the Reminder, Lab Girl

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 21, 2016

Part of the fun of working in a bookstore is that we get advance copies of books to read. Another great thing is that we have author events. I feel like I hit the jackpot because the author of one of the advance copies I am reading, a memoir titled Lab Girl, is coming to…
