Kojo Nnamdi Show producers Elizabeth Weinstein and Tayla Burney will lead book discussions at Politics and Prose this season.

It’s a new year and WAMU In Your Bookstore made a resolution to get out even more. Our first foray in 2016 is going to be to a well-established neighborhood destination: Politics and Prose.

The shop in Northwest D.C. is one where you might bump into a former President or Supreme Court Justice while browsing. And they recently expanded by partnering with Busboys and Poets to expand their reach to other corners of the city.

Politics and Prose is host to hundreds of events each year, we’re dipping our toe in with three of our own. Members of our team will be at the original location on Connecticut Avenue to talk with authors about their work and bring you into the conversation as well.

Join us at Politics and Prose for:
