GU Book Crew made a quick stop at Middle East Books and More on Wednesday afternoon and we weren’t disappointed! Friendly service, a nice environment and a great variety of books on all Middle Eastern topics. We even picked up a book! Right in the middle of DuPont and Adams Morgan, its a great place to visit and pick up a book before your afternoon coffee stop.
Theme: Middle East book and ‘more’, including olive oils, pins, posters and pottery inspired by the Middle East. They also sell a variety of items that go back to non-profits and/or help the refugee crisis.
Time of Our Visit: Wednesday afternoon, pretty quiet and perfect timing
Hours: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm Tuesday-Friday, 11:00 am – 7:00 pm Saturday-Sunday
A Brief History: Middle East Books and More started as a project of the American Education Trust that has been promoting U.S.-Middle East understanding. The founders of AET later created Middle East Books and More to meet the need for quality books about the region and U.S. policy
