Book-a-Month Gift Program


Need the perfect gift for a reader in your life? Enroll a lucky person—or indulge yourself—in our Book-a-Month Gift Program! Each month, our staff will choose and send a book anywhere in the world to the person of your choice. Let those who live elsewhere experience Politics & Prose.

We carefully select each book based on the information you provide: your reader’s interests and hobbies, and their favorite books, writers, literary genres, etc. We are happy to correspond with the gift recipient to discuss book selections and areas of literary interest.

We send books to readers of all ages! Visit our Children's Book-a-Month page to give this gift to a child.

  • Books sent outside D.C. are not taxed.
