Emilie Buchwald, a long time presence in the Twin Cities publishing world, will be honored next month with the A.P. Anderson Award from the Anderson Center in Red Wing.
 
Buchwald founded the literary journal Milkweed Chronicles in 1979 and served as its editor and publisher until it ceased publication in 1987. She also founded Milkweed Editions in 1984, a nonprofit independent literary press which has published Robert Bly, Bill Holm, Patricia Hampl, Paul Gruchow, and many others.
 
She founded The Gryphon Press in 2006, which publishes children’s picture books about animal well-being.
 
Buchwald has previously been honored as a McKnight Foundation distinguished artist, and with a lifetime achievement award from the National Book Critics Circle.
 
The A.P. Anderson Award is given annually by the Anderson Center in Red Wing, in recognition of contributions to the cultural and artistic life of Minnesota. Previous recipients include conductor Philip Brunelle, Libby Larsen, Joe Dowling, and Robert Bly and William Duffy.
