Welcome to Apostle Islands Booksellers - OPEN YEAR ROUND!

Apostle Islands BooksellersWe are proud to announce we are now accessible to wheelchairs. Just ask for the portable ramp!

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 Big Water Café and Coffee Roasters. 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.

A Virtual Chat with Northernmost's Author Peter Geye


Wednesday, August 19th at 7pm
Register for event here

Minneapolis author Peter Geye has been one of our favorite authors and one of our biggest supporters since we opened our door in 2010. While we were disappointed to cancel his in-person event back in April, we are thrilled to be offering you a chance to meet Peter online and learn all about the final journey for the Eide Family.

A TIMELESS TALE: Northernmost explores universal themes-of identity, family, the nature of love and obligation that will appeal to general readers and book clubs everywhere. Half historical fiction, half contemporary marital drama, Northernmost offers a masterful supply of adventure and heart-stopping suspense on ice floes closer to the North Pole than anywhere else, complete with deathly-cold water, near-starvation, and a marauding bear. Talk about something for every kind of serious reader.

We will be limiting the Zoom webinar to 100 viewers, so if you're unable to register, never fear! We will also be broadcasting this event LIVE on our Facebook page.

If you would like a signed copy of Northernmost, please pre-order your copy by ordering online, or contact the store to reserve your copy today!
