Bear Wallow Books

After 40 years in Indiana, Bear Wallow Books headquarters has moved to Providence, Rhode Island. And a new voice answers your phone calls. Anne is the eldest daughter of Tom and Linda, and bought the family business. Prices are the same through 2019, though shipping charges have been renegotiated, and are lower. Minimum order is still 24, but you can order any title in any quantity. The phone, fax, and email remain the same. And you will still see Linda at trade shows!
