About Milkweed Books


Milkweed Books is a part of Milkweed Editions, but this doesn't mean we only sell books we ourselves publish. Instead, the store's mix of titles reflects our mission: Milkweed Books showcases and sells titles primarily published by independent presses, nonprofit presses, and other publishers working to bring the most exciting literary art to the marketplace. If you want to find the best new poetry, experimental or creative nonfiction, short stories, or translations, this is the bookstore for you.

We also offer events, membership, and multiple subscription services.
