With its knowledgeable staff and a great selection of books given the cozy space, if there’s a cuter damn bookstore in D.C. I don’t know it.
Freedom City has enjoyed brisk online sales even though its official launch at Slash Run is still two weeks away and it will be February before it’s listed on Amazon, which is where something like 67 percent of books in the United Stated are sold. But if you’re local and prefer the tactile benefits of picking up a book before you buy it, you can now get it at Upshur Street Books. You would be supporting an indie business and a local author, plus rubbing shoulders with some of the most interesting people in Petworth.
Supplies are limited, so consider messaging them at @UpshurStBooks before you go to make sure they still have copies. Of course, if you enjoy my book (and you will!), please help spread the love!
