We Are Duende District

We Are By & For PoC

We are a bookstore by and for people of color -- where all are welcome.


Founded in February 2017, Duende District's mission is to bring a highly inclusive and pleasurable general bookstore experience in Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas, serving a multicultural community with an equally multicultural ownership/staff.


Where All Are Wecome

We are a pop-up bookstore, our focus is on the large Hispanic, black, immigrant and other communities of color throughout D.C.-Maryland-Virginia, while also welcoming all people to participate in the conversation/experience.   


Duende District's pop-ups are also how we will discover the community to make our first permanent bricks-and-mortar home.   

Let's Build Community

We invite anyone who would like to see Duende District in their community to contact us -- and if you believe in what we're doing, help us bring this bookstore to the DMV!
