WAMU in Your Bookstore: Kramerbooks

By Tayla Burney

Kramers-Logo-wEBWe’ve already established that our listeners are avid readers. So, we thought…what better place to meet up with some of those listeners than a local bookshop?

No better place! Starting in September, WAMU staff – reporters, producers and hosts – will be popping into Kramerbooks in Dupont Circle for events.

“This partnership is a wonderful opportunity,” said Sarah Baline, Kramerbooks Events Director. “We can’t wait to bring these journalists and artists together, help foster our literary community, and, of course, have great conversations!”

The idea is pretty simple – members of our team will talk with authors about their work and bring you into the conversation as well.

Join us when WAMU staff participate in the following events at Kramerbooks:

Mr. Smith Goes To Prison

Tuesday, September 8 at 6:30 p.m.
