Welcome to Apostle Islands Booksellers - OPEN YEAR ROUND!

Apostle Islands Booksellers


Apostle Islands Booksellers is a full-service, locally-owned, independent bookstore located in Bayfield, Wisconsin on the south shore of Lake Superior. Our collection of books emphasizes the history, cultures, nature, lifestyle, cuisine, and activities of our locale – the Apostle Islands, the Chequamegon region, Lake Superior, the Great Lakes, Ojibwe Country, and the Northwoods.

We offer carefully selected general fiction and non-fiction titles of interest to residents of Bayfield, Washburn, Ashland and the surrounding communities as well as the many visitors who journey to the unique and spectacular settings of Madeline Island, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and the Gaylord A. Nelson National Wilderness Area. We also carry a selection of quality accessories, maps and charts, and gift items with a regional flavor.

You will find us on Rittenhouse Avenue in the heart of historic Bayfield, Wisconsin, across from the Wonderstate Coffee shop. Come in and browse. If we don’t have just what you want, we can usually get it for you quickly or find an excellent alternative. Check our Events calendar and join us for author readings, book groups and other events to add a literary dimension to your Bayfield experience.

When: Tuesday, August 3rd at 5pm
Where: The Dock Shop on Front Street (next to Keeper of the Light), Bayfield

Please join us for a lively conversation with two of our favorite authors; Nickolas Butler and Peter Geye.
Butler's fourth novel and fifth book, GODSPEED, will be released on July 27th and Geye's latest novel, NORTHERNMOST will be available in paperback on July 20th.

While these two stories are incredibly different, we are certain that we will learn so much about each writer's process and story.
