Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin the Boswell Bank Company is used to providing a certain je ne sais quoi, or charm to their customers and community.  The Boswell Book Company started in April of 2009 when they opened in the Downer Avenue branch of the Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops. The Harry W. Schwartz on Downer Ave has been open since 1997 and has since provided the community with quite a few businesses and events to keep any state satisfied.

Boswell Book Company prides themselves by being:

“old-fashioned, hand-selling, book-reading, event-holding, answer-questioning booksellers”

They have a knowledgable staff that has an encyclopedic knowledge of books, past, present, and even future, ready for any book question that may pop up. They even can provide customized recommendations based on a customer’s reading taste.

Their upcoming events have extremely detailed information on their authors and what they are promoting. It lets the customer know exactly what and who will be there.

They have a variety of different genre themed book clubs that are sure to satisfy any reader.

Staff selections and recommendations are for both adults and kids because the Boswell Book Company offers a little bit of everything. They even have featured gift items that range from a unique bookseat to a Boswell yo-yo.

The Boswell Bank Company is an integral piece to their community.

“Since 2009, we have been presenting Pulitzer and Man Booker Prize winning authors, bestselling scribes (before and after hitting that #1 spot), and local writers launching first (second, or third) books. We partner with local businesses to offer fine arts previews and fine foods, and even bring authors to schools and libraries throughout the city (and beyond!).”

The Boswell Book Company has a a lot to offer to their community. Books may be their first love but it is how they present it, that makes it such a lovable spot in their community.
