Washington Independent Review of Books: Duende District Pops Up At The Writer's Center

Duende District Pop-Up Bookstore

  • October 15, 2017

The multicultural shop comes to the Writer's Center in Bethesda, MD, all this week.

Visit the Writer’s Center Book Gallery as we turn it over to Duende District, a bookstore by and for people of color—where all are welcome. Celebrate this new venture with a special reading and event on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Center. Founded in February 2017, Duende District's mission is to bring a highly inclusive and pleasurable general bookstore experience in Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas, serving a multicultural community with an equally multicultural ownership/staff. This is a pop-up bookstore that focuses on the large Hispanic, black, immigrant and other communities of color throughout D.C.-Maryland-Virginia, while also welcoming all people to participate in the conversation/experience. Duende District's pop-ups are a brilliant way for the founders to find the community for their permanent bricks-and-mortar home.
