We understand that with the disruption of COVID-19 comes a lot of uncertainty and upheaval in your day-to-day activities. Kids are home and you might still have to get work done. Or you don't know the next time you'll be back at work. We're not suggesting books are a cure-all for the amount of stress we're all under, but time and again, they have proven to be a balm -- a source of information, comfort, education, and escape.

At this time, we are continuing to fill web and phone orders through our warehouse and will do so until the university decides otherwise. In trying to help you in the best way we are able, we are offering 40% off all titles with free shipping to all domestic addresses through June 30, 2020. Just use code READ at checkout. This discount is not available on forthcoming titles.

Additionally, we have a significant list of open access titles (made possible by a grant awarded to the Press in 2016 from a joint project between the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to digitize 59 out-of-print titles) available at http://wayneopen.org/, should you want to get started reading right away.

Tumblr discount! Save 25% on staff favorites! 

Have you been following our #WSUPShelfTalkers on Tumblr? We are spreading the word on staff favorite WSUP titles all year long. Some of us recalled a funny story that happened during production of a particular title, some of us forged great friendships with the authors of the books we’ve published, and some just found the exact right thing to read at the exact right time we needed it. We want to share these and other stories with you. Visit our blog on Tumblr to see everyone's picks! As an added bonus, take 25% off of any of the staff picks with the code TMBL at checkout.
