Bear Wallow Books

There are changes afoot (a-paw?!) at Bear Wallow Books. After 40 years in Indiana, headquarters has moved to Providence, Rhode Island. Our address is now 22 Parsonage Street, Ste 284, Providence, RI 02903. And there will be a new voice answering your phone calls and email: Anne Wolfe. Anne is the eldest daughter of Tom and Linda, and bought the family business. The phone, fax, and email will remain the same. And you will still see Linda at trade shows!
