In the next few months, a variety of new independent bookstores will open in the District. First, on H Street, a bookstore, called Solid State Books, will open at The Apollo. Next, two new Politics and Prose locations will open up, one at Southwest Waterfront’s The Wharf and one at NoMa’s Union Market.
PoPville reported that the store at The Wharf will operate across approximately 2,300 square feet of space. This fall, some of the authors expected to host an event at the venue include MSNBC host Chris Matthews, Jordanian Filipina American writer and editor Malu Halasa, National Security Affairs Specialist Mark Perry, and Cat Behaviorist Jackson Galaxy. This venue will open in October.
This fall, Politics and Prose will also open a new location next to Union Market’s existing indoor hall. The exact month that it will open is not yet clear.
In a statement, Politics and Prose co-owner Bradley Graham told Publishers Weekly that “[Union Market] has great potential to become a thriving literary community.”
