Grand Meander 2022

Event date: 
Saturday, December 3, 2022 - 10:00am

It's time for the annual Grand Meander! Red Balloon Bookshop is so excited to mark the occasion with all sorts of fun celebrations:

From 12:00pm - 1:30pm, discuss delicious Swedish American treats with Patrice Johnson, author of Land of 10,000 Plates and Jul: Swedish American Holiday Traditions! Test out some tasty free samples and purchase signed copies to make for the perfect holiday present.

At 2:30pm, storyteller Angela has declared that she will never read books again if she can't do a special storytime reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! And what perfect timing, too, because rumor has it that Red Balloon's neighbor, Salut Bar Americain, will be hosting a very special guest who's traveled all the way from the North Pole just for Grand Meander! That's right, at 3:00pm Santa himself will be at Salut! Make an afternoon of it by stopping by both stores for these Santa extravaganzas.


A beloved tradition, Grand Meander combines the charm of historic Grand Avenue and the cozy communal spirit of the holidays.

Patrice Johnson is a self-described Nordic Food Geek and meatball historian. Her weekly food and culture column appears in her hometown newspaper, and she is a cooking instructor with American Swedish Institute, Vesterheim Museum, Nordic Ware, and other venues around the region.
