Duende District has partnered with the independent PoC-owned la mano coffee bar for a pop-up July 11-23.
Customers will find a high-quality selection of about 50 titles in Fiction, Poetry, Memoir/Essay, Beverages/Cookbooks, Art/Music, Graphic Novels and children’s books — all by authors and illustrators of color.
Though customers can browse and buy the curated books during all of la mano’s opening hours, Duende District owner Angela Maria Spring will be onsite for the bookstore's “official” hours.
Mon-Wed from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sat/Sun from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.
La mano coffee bar, recently featured in the Washington City Paper’s “Underrated Food Issue,” offers traditional coffee and espresso drinks prepared with care, a selection of responsibly sourced coffees, and other original signature beverages.
A variety of sweet and savory baked goods are prepared from scratch in-house, including their signature item, the hand pie – inspired by the quintessential Latin American staple, the empanada.
Owned by Javier Rivas, la mano is located in the Historic Neighborhood of Takoma in Washington, D.C. at 304 Carroll St. NW, just steps from the Takoma Metro Station.
