EVENTS - Hunger Book Sale at All Saints' Cathedral

The 32nd Annual Great Hunger Book Sale

July 30 - August 4

For more than 30 years, the annual Hunger Book Sale held at All Saints' Cathedral has become one of the largest sales of its kind in Wisconsin, raising money for an array of food pantries, meal programs, shelters and agencies here and abroad. Besides books, we sell previously owned CDs, books on tape, DVDs, and videos. In the course of the sale we sell thousands of used books and have been reaching sales of more than $20,000 for the past several years.
