The vision of Duende District was born from bookseller and poet Angela M. Spring’s desire to truly shift the idea of what a bookstore community can be and redefine the operational structure of traditional bookselling. Duende District’s first retail venture as an entrepreneurial literature startup incubated within Artomatic 2017. Duende’s pop-up store at Artomatic featured fiction, art books, graphic novels, and children books by some of the most talented authors and illustrators of color today.
Until the establishment of a brick and mortar store, Duende District will continue to take advantage of opportunities to partner with local community events as a pop-up bookstore.
“It is time for a bookstore that specifically supports and empowers people of color in the book world. Duende District’s mission is to create a new space shaped by people of color at senior-level positions (buyers, event planners, creative directors, etc.) to create an authentic intersectional conversation and high quality bookstore that everyone is invited to take part in.” - Angela Maria Spring
