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—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.
