To our friends and loyal customers:

Today's press carries the news that Barbara and Carla are planning to retire after 26 years of growing an initially small store into a space five times larger in square footage, and over 20 times larger in sales. We want to reaffirm that Politics & Prose is still thriving, ending the fiscal year with record sales; but we are looking to a successor from a younger generation to take our flourishing business in some new directions while assuring that Politics & Prose maintains its core commitments to excellence in literature and community involvement.

Although we are contemplating retirement, we anticipate maintaining a regular presence during the transition, and hopefully afterward. Our goal is to find new leadership to operate the business in the spirit which has been our hallmark. As always, we'll see you at the store!

-- Barbara & Carla
