They host cool events: authors, speakers, musicians. DC is committed to keeping this gem around; it's always busy.

Last time we were here a friend was discussing his latest book. The ownership has changed but it still is the best bookstore around. Specializing in political books and serious literature, it was the place to go to get the latest book about President Trump's White House. They often have lectures and meet the author sessions. And they can get you just about everything.

Bustling to boot! Great little vibe with an upstairs and downstairs (where the coffee shop is). Parking in back behind the stores too.

Bookstores and Libraries are my go to in every city and Politics and Prose was awesome. I try to get there each time I’m in DC. I picked up some magnets and bookmarks.
