Win White House Diary: in honor of Politics and Prose
Good news from Washington on the sale of Politics and Prose, the venerable indepedent bookstore.
The Washington Post reports today that six serious bidders have emerged from the more than 50 offers made on the store. Among them, the Post says, "is a local consortium of investors that includes outgoing editor of the New Republic Franklin Foer; XM Satellite radio founder Hugh Panero; Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for the Atlantic; and Rafe Sagalyn, a literary agent."
The Connecticut Avenue store has used its location in the nation's capital -- and its loyal customer base -- to attract A-list authors. Former President Jimmy Carter held a reading there last month, signing copies of "White House Diary."
Hey, it's the holiday season, so in honor of the store, I'm going to give away a copy of "White House Diary" today. Just leave a comment if you want a chance to win it.
