We thought book loving Brooklanders would be interested in Duende District’s pop up store at the Arts Walk. The focus of the business is to create a bookstore community that “specifically supports and empowers people of color”. From the website:
The bookstore at large will be popping up in our Brookland workspace from September 8 – September 17 with a selection of fiction, poetry, memoirs/essays, beverage + cookbooks, art + music titles, graphic novels, local zines, and children’s books. The pop-up will also feature the work of 2 DC-based artists, Aliana Grace Bailey and Lory Ivey Alexander.
Come meet Duende District’s first resident artists, Lory Ivey Alexander & Aliana Grace Bailey.
We’ll have an art viewing, light refreshments and you’ll have a chance to go home with gorgeous, powerful pieces from two of D.C.’s finest WoC artists.
Duende District is located at the Monroe Street Market Arts Walk (716 Monroe Street NE) at Studio 8.
