Thanks from P&P

The Thanksgiving holiday is a welcome opportunity for us to convey our thanks to the many people who support Politics & Prose and the role it plays in the civic life of our community. This year has produced a bounty of great books and literary programs and, as a result of your sustained patronage, P&P continues to thrive.

But these times also present new challenges. In recent months we’ve watched our country become bitterly divided politically, with many expressing fear and uncertainty about America’s future. At times such as these, bookstores like P&P must remain vital spaces where people can join together as part of a vibrant and inclusive community. All of us at P&P are committed to providing a haven for people to gather, browse, converse, and enjoy coffee or a meal.

It’s now been five-and-a-half years since we assumed ownership of the store, and we’re continually inspired by the many words of encouragement that customers offer. P&P is so fortunate to serve a community where people understand the importance of buying local, appreciate the special value of an independent bookstore, and believe in the store’s larger mission of promoting the discussion of literature and ideas.

As successful as P&P remains, we don’t take good fortune for granted. We know that as a local business we can always do better—and that many of you won’t be shy about letting us know what should be improved.

Our gratitude to one and all. And Happy Thanksgiving!

— Brad and Lissa
