Jan 26: Woodland Pattern Marathon Reading

Saturday, January 26th
10am - 1am

at Woodland Pattern Book Center
720 East Locust Street
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Woodland Pattern Book Center was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin's Riverwest neighborhood by Anne Kingsbury and Karl Gartung in 1979. The center houses a bookstore with over 25,000 small press titles, in addition to an art gallery where they present exhibitions, artist talks, readings, experimental films, concerts, and writing workshops.

Every year, on the last Saturday of January, over 125 poets, writers, and performers show their support for Woodland Pattern by participating in its Annual Poetry Marathon & Benefit.  All proceeds raised from this event help Woodland Pattern continue its literary programming.  Woodland Pattern is a nonprofit organization, all donations are fully tax deductible.  Individuals can now sponsor readers online through the new “pledge a reader” giving form.

Pledges can be made here, both small and large.
