Politics & Prose + Busboys & Poets = MVT Win!
Friday April 15, 2016
Legendary Washington, DC bookseller, Politics and Prose, has opened at Busboys & Poets at 5th & K, where they will now manage the book sales for the busy restaurant and community gathering place. The arrangement unites Politics and Prose’s bookselling skills, resources and shared belief in promoting public discussions of ideas, cultural issues and current events with Busboys & Poet’s longtime commitment to celebrating cultural diversity within the framework of great food, drink and community spaces. Politics and Prose states that they’ve made substantial changes to the space, with new display areas and an open, welcoming feel. The book selection is completely new, with a range of titles that reflect the interests and diversity of the MVT community and the Busboys and Poets audience, and a strong children’s section. Politics and Prose will kick things off with a program of free author events lined up for April, and on April 20, will welcome Nathalia Holt for ‘Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, From Missiles to the Moon’, as part of a new program called “It’s Science”. The bookstore is open from 9 AM to 10 PM and also features an online pickup service for orders from their website. Click here for their event schedule and more information.
