Event description
Please join us for a celebration of Shilpi Malinowski's new book: "Shaw, LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale in Washington, D.C.: An Oral History"

About this event

For three years, Shilpi Malinowski collected oral histories of the residents of D.C.'s most gentrified area. Residents, old and new, shared their perceptions and feelings through incredible change. In her new book, she wove their words together to tell the story of this neighborhood from the 1950s until 2020.

The History Press will publish the book in October, 2021.

Join us for a celebration!

Shilpi will be present to sign books, chat with the community and to toast the narrators who participated in this project. The main event will be held on the patio, with portraits on display upstairs.

Politics and Prose will be providing books for purchase and Big Bear Cafe's wood-fired oven will be ready for pizza orders.

If you want to order a book in advance of the event, they are available here.
