Keeping It Local

The Chippewa Valley is home to many talented and aspiring writers and poets. Some are already household names and others are newly published and just beginning the hard work of promoting their book and attracting appreciative readers. This area is known for its vibrant musical scene but there is also a rich literary community of gifted writers. We invite you to purchase their books and to disprove the old saying that an artist is never appreciated in their hometown. Show that they are appreciated and supported most in their own communities.

Buy a book by a local author and you will chuckle at Michael Perry’s insights into small town life, charm a child with one of Katie McKy’s books or discover a new author to treasure and be proud of because of their roots in the Eau Claire area and their talent.

You can purchase books by local authors in our shop or online. See a listing below of those available. Call us at 715-831-9788 and order, or click the appropriate links below, and order on-line. We would be happy to ship the book to you.

Visit our website often for the latest books just released by local authors. Also watch for developments to come, including author bios & interviews, text & audio selections of their work, and reader feedback.

“You can buy a book anywhere but when you buy at your local bookstore you also buy your community. That can’t be found in a box from Amazon. If you want community you have to be part of one. If you want a better world, support the community you live in.” Author Unknown
