Once Upon a Crime BookstoreOnce Upon a Crime Bookstore has won the Raven Prize from the Mystery Writers of America. In fact, a second midwestern bookstore has also been singled out, according to the national organization’s press release:

“Two exceptional mystery bookstores will be honored with the 2011 Raven Award. Established in 1953, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing. Once Upon a Crime in Minneapolis, MN, and Centuries & Sleuths in Chicago, IL, will receive recognition for their contribution to the mystery community.”

MPR has a great article about Pat Frovarp and Gary Shulze, who have co-owned Once Upon a Crime for the past ten years.

Stop by the store to give them your best–and buy a book!
