Why shop with Politics & Prose?

We are part of your community. Not only can you meet a friend for an author talk, have coffee at the store, and know our booksellers by name, but we pay taxes to the District of Columbia to support city services. We contribute our time and our money with donations of books and resources to many educational and cultural institutions in the metropolitan area. The Politics & Prose membership program helps the store by maintaining a loyal customer base on whom we can depend. The Politics & Prose membership program helps you by allowing you to shop at your favorite bookstore and save money on the books that you want to buy. Your purchase goes much farther when you shop locally, and we thank you for continuing to do so.

Existing Members: If you need to change your address or contact information in our database, you can either tell us in the store or email books@politics-prose.com

Q: Why are membership rates going up?

A: The last time we raised membership rates was in 2010. We are actually overdue.

Q:  Will you be prorating or giving credit to existing memberships (i.e. if my membership expires in early 2023)?

A: Memberships are dated year to year from the month you sign up or renew. We can't do credits or prorating for any memberships.  If your membership is about to expire, or will expire say in the next 3 months, we recommend renewing now at the lower rates.

Q:  Can I buy a membership for someone else?

A:  Sure!  Memberships make a great gift!  All we will need is the person's name, address, and email.

Q: Are there special memberships for teachers and students?

A: Yes! University and K-12 teachers from an accredited school get a free annual membership with valid ID.
