About Milkweed Books

Milkweed Books is owned and operated by Milkweed Editions, an independent literary press. Our mission is "to identify, nurture, and publish transformative literature, and build an engaged community around it." Milkweed Books provides a space for this engagement, offering books we have published as well as books published by other presses we admire. We prioritize originality, marginalized voices, and books exploring our relationship to place and the more-than-human world. We are a resource for the neighborhood growing around us, a site of connection, community, and exploration.
