A Room of One's Own 2021 Midwest Store of the Year

The Midwest Independent Booksellers Association announced yesterday that its bookseller of the year for 2021 is A Room of One’s Own in Madison, Wis. The Midwest Bookseller of the Year Award is given each year to an indie bookstore that has had an extraordinary impact upon its community. In a release, MIBA described Room as one of the Midwest’s “most empowered, political, and feisty” indies, and praised its staff for “keeping the store running and their customers reading” during a pandemic, as well as while the store was moving from downtown Madison to the Atwood neighborhood. Room, which was profiled by PW earlier this year, will officially receive its award at MIBA’s virtual membership meeting on October 27.
