Politics & Prose's newest location, in Washington, D.C.'s historic Union Market district, will open on Tuesday, June 19. Located in a newly renovated warehouse adjacent to the Union Market indoor food market, the new store will carry books and gifts for kids and adults and have a dedicated events space in the back of the store. Plans for events include author talks and readings along with workshops, classes and children's activities. And while the store won't have a cafe of its own, a coffee shop will open soon next door.
The opening of the Union Market store continues a busy year for P&P: last October, the bookstore opened a new branch at The Wharf in D.C., and over the winter expanded the flagship store on Connecticut Avenue.
