Politics and Prose is keeping its doors open, with some changes and precautions.
The store will ship books to US customers for free, for one thing.
And it’s asking that anyone who’s sick or has possibly been exposed to stay out of P&P stores.
Events are going on as planned for now. But to protect visiting authors, the store is canceling signing lines. Pre-signed books will be available for purchase at author events.
The bookstore said it was disinfecting its three locations and hoping to keep up community programming as much as possible.
“Looking ahead,” the store said in a news release, “local businesses like P&P will surely be impacted in this period of uncertainty.”
