Brad & Lissa


We want to thank all of you—our loyal and enthusiastic customers—for your warmth and support as we begin our stewardship of Politics and Prose. Everyone who browses in our aisles, discusses books and ideas with our booksellers, attends our classes and author events— and yes, buys books from us—has helped build P&P into the iconic community institution that it is today.

You are also essential to the store’s future. As new owners dedicated to preserving the special ethos and long-term vitality of P&P, we want to meet you and hear from you. To that end, we are planning several “meet and greets” over the next few months that will give you a chance to chat with us informally. The first of these meet and greets is in July; additional dates will be announced soon.

Informal Meet and Greet With Brad and Lissa
(no sign-up necessary . . . just come along)
Thursday, July 14, 4 – 6 p.m.



Over the coming months, we also will conduct a series of focus groups with customers to elicit ideas and suggestions about any aspect of the store and its operations and to test out some ideas of our own. Each focus group will be limited to 20 people and requires advance sign-up. One session per customer, please. The sessions will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our first session is in July; other dates will be announced soon.

Customer Focus Groups
(sign-up at Information Desk or by phone at 202-364-1919)
Friday, July 22, 4 – 6 p.m.

We are enjoying seeing many old friends at the store on a regular basis and also making new acquaintances. Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to introduce yourselves. We hope you will feel free to say hello any time you are in the store, particularly if you can’t make it to the initial meet and greet or focus group. We look forward to hearing from you in the days and weeks ahead.
