An exhibit celebrating the acquisition by the Department of Special Collections of the Woodland Pattern Book Center archives from its founding in 1979 through 2012. Woodland Pattern Book Center in Milwaukee has been a community mainstay and a cultural venue for American and international poets, writers, and artists for more than three decades.
On display are selections from the archives, including correspondence and thirty years’ worth of literary broadsides specially printed for readings at Woodland Pattern.
A lively event on February 13, 2014 celebrated the acquisition. It featured a discussion with Woodland Pattern Book Center founders Anne Kingsbury & Karl Gartung and literary program director Chuck Stebleton.
