Wisconsin Writers Wall of Fame

The Milwaukee Public Library’s Wisconsin Writers Wall of Fame pays tribute to a spectrum of literary talents – novelists, poets, journalists, playwrights, historians – whose work has been influenced by their life and experiences in Wisconsin. The Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library sponsors the Wisconsin Writers Wall of Fame reception when a new name is added.


Milwaukee Poet Laureate

2013-2015 Poets Laureate, James Chapson and the late Jeff Poniewaz help to promote poetry throughout Milwaukee.

“The Poet Laureate project seeks to foster a greater appreciation and understanding within the community of the reading and writing of poetry,” said Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library President Marsha Huff. “With the support of the Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library, we can offer this valuable program.”
