Committed to bringing a highly inclusive selection of books to her community, Angela Maria Spring started her pop-up bookstore, Duende District Books in 2017. After 17 years in bookstore management, buying, and merchandise display, she was eager to curate a selection of multicultural authors for customers in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Duende District Books often partners with local non-profits to employ high school students of color.

Fun fact: This by-and-for-PoC bookstore was aided by crowdfunding and has been widely celebrated by the community!
