The Story 

Dick and Jan Hedges, three-time retirees from the field of education, have turned their love of reading and writing into a dream come true with Hedgehog.INK! 

 Both are avid readers and aspiring writers. Dick has written a weekly column for the Fort Scott Tribune for over 50 years.  


Jan and Dick Hedges

Dick was widowed in 2006 and Jan in 2008. They had known each other some 30 years earlier, reconnected and were married in 2011 when Jan moved to Fort Scott.

The story continues…

Sadly, Dick’s journey ended on March 11, 2022. However, his love of reading and writing continue to flourish under the direction of Jan and her book-loving staff. The bookstore is an on-going story, unfolding day by day.

“We are a store full of books but the best stories are the ones who walk in our door”.
