is a project to talk about the many decisions people in their early twenties make while
starting out their independent lives. This is also a project to connect with artists and musicians and to share their
work with a larger community.
The Book of Bartholomew is a series of 48 illustrated
short stories that follow Bartholomew and his small
family and friends through their adventures of beginning a community garden

of this page.
All the stories were written by Mark Granlund from
2009 - 2013. The stories are illustrated by Mark Granlund
and by many other artists from the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area. The final story, #48, was published on 3/9/2014.
Over time, all four volumes will become available in print.
Bartholomew may continue in
the future, but for now, this first story arc of 48 stories is complete. Please read and
enjoy them. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Mark Granlund at:
