What could be better than a good book, a glass of wine, and great company? Come eat, drink, and be liter-merry with us!
The 9th Annual Takoma Park Book Fair is this coming Saturday, December 9th, from 2-5:00pm at the Takoma Busboys & Poets, 235 Carroll St NW, Washington, DC. The event is free and open to the public. (For more information, see the Takoma Park Book Fair Facebook page, the TPBK event, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We’re delighted that Busboys and Poets is hosting the Book Fair. It’s a great space for books, food and community building. As you read their aims below, you can understand why we’re so happy to be working with them on this event!
Busboys and Poets aims to be not just a restaurant, but also a space in which intellectual, cultural, political and social issues can come together for a discussion that benefits everyone. With that in mind, our bookstore, Busboys and Poets Books, aims to be a space in which literature, politics, society and social justice can be engaged with in a productive and exciting atmosphere. At Busboys and Poets Books, we believe that both the act of reading and the craft of writing thrive in a community. In addition to our bookstore, which offers a wide range of titles from authors near and far, we also host a number of literary events throughout the year – from book discussions to literary themed dinners, we aim to provide inclusive events for introverted bookworms and talkative academics alike!
