Minneapolis's Milkweed Books was named "Best Bookstore" in City Pages' Best of the Twin Cities issue. The magazine wrote: "Milkweed Books... is small, but mighty, with a curated collection featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and young-adult selections from Milkweed and other small presses.... Milkweed Books is a welcome addition to a bustling, literary neighborhood." The Readers' Choice winner in the category was Magers & Quinn.
Milkweed told Shelf Awareness, "We are thrilled and grateful for the recognition, especially since we have only been open for seven months."
