About This Event
ReadysetDC, an online magazine highlighting arts and culture in Washington, D.C. partners with locally owned Read’s Clothing Project and independent bookstore, Politics & Prose, to present The ReadysetDC Book Swap. The Book Swap will be just that, a book swap, but with a twist. Entry is free, with the donation of one book at the door*. All books will be collected and donated, in collaboration with Read’s Clothing Project, to Books for Africa, a non-profit dedicated to ending the book famine in Africa.
The event will feature a book swap, so bibliophiles, bring your best! All categories are welcome; children’s, non-fiction, fiction, poetry, you name it! The evening will also feature music and a cash and credit bar. The evening also will feature local illustrator Elizabeth Graeber, who’s book An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails will be featured at the event.
*With the presentation of one, gently used book at the door, you will gain entry to the event. You can bring additional gently used books to either donate, or to participate in the swap. We ask that you please bring books that you feel will be of good use, something you treasure to give to someone who will treasure it. We retain the right to deny books that we deem inappropriate.
When & Where: Wednesday, November 30th 7:30 – 11:30 p.m. at The Dunes Gallery, 1402 Meridian Place, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20010.
