Open Book Turns 10

Just a decade ago, Open Book opened its doors as the first literary and book arts center of its kind in the nation. Since then, the creative energy of the building has not only attracted readers, writers, artists, and passersby to explore the space and see what the tenant literary organizations have to offer, but Open Book has also spurred the rapid development of a once-run-down neighborhood. Learn more about 10 inspiring years devoted to the book, covered by local Minnesota presses.
