I have already told you about how he’s in Wayzata waiting for you to find him.  I have also discovered he is hiding out in other places around town.  The month of July could be filled with just looking for our pal, Waldo.  Candlewick Press and the American Booksellers Association along with 265 independent bookstores  all across the country (3 of which are in the Twin Cities) to look for Waldo and to check out locally-owned businesses.  It’s free to do and starts today–July 1.  It runs until Wednesday, July 31 with Waldo Celebrations all over town!
