Politics and Prose co-owner dies
Carla Cohen, co-owner of the iconic Washington independent bookstore Politics and Prose, died Monday morning.
Cohen, along with co-owner Barbara Meade, announced in June that they were putting their Connecticut Avenue bookstore up for sale. They said they were too tired to continue steering the bookstore.
Politics and Prose opened in 1984 across from its current location. Cohen, a former urban planner, thought there would be a market for books outside downtown Washington, and she found Meade through a classified ad. The store became a premier stop for top-shelf author tours.
