at Sixth & I

Imagine standing on a box in the middle of a busy city, dressed as a white-faced bride, and silently using your eyes to ask people for money. Or touring Europe in a punk cabaret band, and finding a place to sleep each night by reaching out to strangers on Twitter. In The Art of Asking (Grand Central, $27), Amanda Palmer expands on the ideas in her popular TED talk to reveal how ordinary people, those of us without thousands of Twitter followers and adoring fans, could use a little help now and then.

SUPPORTED EVENTS

Did you know that Politics & Prose sells books for author events held outside
the store?

Book sales outside the store provide another service to individuals and organizations in the community. We have sold books at author-signing parties in private homes, in churches, and at many other venues. We have even sold books at baseball games, theater openings and, once, a reception in a beauty salon! Each out-of-store sale is different.

Politics & Prose provides books and the staff to sell them, although some groups prefer to sell books themselves. If you are giving a party for a friend who has a book coming out, or if your business or organization is sponsoring a speaker who's written a recent book, please contact our Supported Events Manager, Becky Meloan, at 202-349-9811 or BMeloan@politics-prose.com—the earlier the better—and we'll make every effort to accommodate your needs. We look forward to adding to the success of your event.

Politics & Prose supplies books
to these book signing events.
Reservations and tickets should be
acquired from the hosting organization.
