On April 10, Angela Maria Spring announced a Kickstarter campaign to fund the launch of a pop-up, multicultural bookstore in the Duende District. After managing the popular Politics and Prose, Spring left her job to start Duende District.
Inspired by her roots as a daughter and granddaughter of Latin American immigrants, Spring left the popular D.C. bookstore, which is in a majority-white neighborhood, to create a space for people of color to celebrate diversity.
When Duende District Bookstore opens, Spring hopes to build purposeful partnerships with minority organizations and communities in the city.
Spring’s goal is to raise $9,000 so if you’re interested in contributing to her mission, you can donate to her campaign here.
You can donate to her campaign here and the GU Book Crew will be sure to continue covering this exciting new spot.
