Milkweed Books Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Milkweed Books, the new indie that is being opened next month by publisher Milkweed Editions in Minneapolis, Minn., has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign designed to allow the nonprofit bookshop "to stretch farther, experiment with more creative models for bookselling, host more public events, and invest in the work of more independent presses and literary authors. Ultimately, your gift will allow us to champion talented writers, engaging books, and curious readers to help ensure a world filled with wonderfully diverse bookshelves."

The new bookstore, which is being managed by Hans Weyandt (who spoke with Minnesota Public Radio yesterday), will be located on the ground floor of the Open Book building as "a wonderful and necessary addition to the building's existing tenants, the Loft Literary Center, the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and Milkweed Editions, as well as our 175,000 visitors per year."
