All our in-store events are free and open to the public. Click here for directions. There is ample parking available in the lot behind the store and in the surrounding neighborhood.

If you can't come to an event and still want an autographed copy of the book, you may purchase titles in advance either in the store, over the phone (202.364.1919 or 1.800.722.0790), or through our website.

When buying online, simply use the checkout comments field to indicate that you would like us to request the author's signature at our event before shipping it to you.

If you purchase a book and ticket package for one of our co-sponsored events held outside of the store but are unable to attend, we will hold the book at our store for up to six months. If you are unable to pick up the book, please call us to arrange shipping. Although we will make every effort, we cannot guarantee the book will be signed by the author for those customers unable to attend the event.

All event-related inquiries can be sent to our Director of Programs and Events, Susan Coll, at events@politics-prose.com. For Children and Teens' Events, contact Kerri Poore at kpoore@politics-prose.com.
