WASHINGTON — Politics and Prose, a literary staple in D.C. for more than three decades, will open a second location this fall at Union Market near the NoMa-Gallaudet- Metro stop in Northeast D.C.

Former Washington Post reporters Bradley Graham and Lisa Muscatine acquired Politics and Prose six years ago.

The Politics and Prose outpost “will be smaller than P&P’s main store, but big enough to carry a wide range of books and non-book items,” the owners said in a statement.

The new location will also host author events that can be held in an event space attached to the new store, or in the Dock 5 Warehouse venue at Union market for larger, ticketed author discussion events.

The owners say they are also considering classes, workshops and children’s activities at the new location.
