Boswell Book Company (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
Just a few blocks west of Lake Michigan sits Boswell Book Company, a general interest bookstore with a storied history. Pick up a drink from Starbucks next door and browse the shelves for your next new or used read. Or, come to one of their author events happening almost every night. History buffs will love to oogle at Boswell’s handsome Milwaukee brick-laden building that formerly housed Downer Garage and Sales Company, the Milwaukee Motor School, and Harry W. Schwartz Bookshop in the last century. Fun fact: Boswell’s owner, Daniel Goldin, was a former employee (for 23 years) at Schwartz’s.
