70 Top Book Publishers in Minnesota (Part 6)
Bob and Angel Dobrow met in New York City 30 years ago. Back in the day, one of their favorite pastimes was walking the streets of the City and exploring New York’s amazing bookstores. The books they collected over the years are now part of the starting inventory of Zenith Bookstore. Bob and Angel raised three sons, had many interesting jobs and life experiences, and moved to Northfield, Minnesota in 2001. On a trip to the North Shore, they fell in love with Duluth. Opening a bookstore fulfills a life-time dream — to establish a place that celebrates a passion for books and reading while fostering inclusiveness and community.
We’ve had a few questions about our plans for reopening. For the safety of our staff and customers, Wild Rumpus will remain ONLINE ONLY for the time being. We continue to offer no-contact curbside pickup from 1-3 PM daily (more details HERE).
While we miss talking to our customers face-to-face, a visit to Wild Rumpus is an immersive, interactive experience, and one that is difficult to envision with proper social distancing measures in place. We continue to offer online book recommendations and virtual book club meetings and will be amping up our virtual event and storytime schedule soon. Please note that our recycled book program is also temporarily suspended while our storefront is closed to the public.

In the late 1930s in Winona, Minnesota, the late Harold "Hal" Edstrom, his brother Everett "Leonard" Edstrom and their friend Roger Busdicker had formed a very popular dance band. Concerned that their conservative father wouldn't approve of using the family name for a band, Harold and Ev took parts of their names and called the band Hal Leonard. As the leader of the Hal Leonard Band, Ev eventually became known as "Hal Leonard."The company Hal Leonard was founded in 1947 after the Hal Leonard Band broke up. At the time, Ev started a music store using the Hal Leonard name while Roger and Harold were both directing award-winning high school bands in Winona.
