Prospero's Books has a broad inventory of used books numbering about 85,000 volumes. We have a well-organized selection of both non-fiction and fiction as well as a rapidly growing inventory of antique maps and prints. Our civil war collection is one of the best in the area.
Thanks to Clint for making me feel welcome and showing me how he does his thing.
The goal of Politics and Prose as stated years ago is "The bookstore will offer superior service and unusual book choices; it will serve as a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.”"
Their staff loves books and enjoys helping customers find books they will enjoy reading. They see the store as a fun place to be, to shop, and to work in. We chat with customers.
-- "From military intelligence to the Foreign Service, Capps has gained a rounded view of war. Of many wars, that is. His memoir revisits Kosovo, Darfur, and Afghanistan and chronicles the war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and genocide that left him with PTSD but that also motivated him to found the Veterans Writing Project, a nonprofit offering writing seminars and workshops for veterans, active and reserve service members, and military family members."
