Are you in search of the perfect gift for the bookworm in your family? Looking for a warm, cozy place to spend one of our seemingly endless dreary afternoons? Tired of scrolling through endless Netflix listings searching for something to watch? Well fear not, Milwaukee! Boswell Book Company on the east side is just what you need.
In business for a decade now, this independent book store has become a hub of the Milwaukee literary scene. The wide variety of books available is fortunately matched with the ability of the staff to assist in any selection-related queries you might have. Naturally, I personally love perusing their Milwaukee history section. With nearly daily events hosted, Boswell not only offers a platform to established authors on national tours promoting their latest book, but also to local new writers looking to build an audience. I have attended several of these events, and they consistently draw diverse and engaged crowds from around the Milwaukee area, young and old alike.
Next time you are looking for your next read, skip the online retailers and big box stores, and stop in to this thriving local gem!
