We all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know about GivingTuesday? Taking place on December 1st, 2015 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday transforms how we think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

Located in the heart of the Riverwest neighborhood in Milwaukee, Woodland Pattern Book Center is not committed to offering contemporary literature to the public, it is also committed to fostering a sense of community.

As booksellers and as presenters of art and literature, we want people to know that there is more than what you see at your chain book store, more than you are taught in school, more than what is reviewed in the papers. We hope to act as a catalyst, putting readers together with small press literature. Come browse our selection of poetry, chapbooks, fine print materials, broadsides, and multicultural literature.

Our space also includes an art gallery where we present exhibitions, artist talks, readings, experimental films, concerts and writing workshops for adults and children.

We think you'll be impressed!

Donate $35 and receive a complimentary membership! Members receive the newsletter, 10% discount on purchases, $1 off on event tickets, and $5 off on workshops.
