President Obama Shops Indie…and chooses Riverhead!
"President Barack Obama and his daughters, Sasha and Malia, went on what has become an annual book shopping spree on Saturday, stopping at a bookstore to promote an event called Small Business Saturday.
The First Family, in casual dress, stopped traffic in Politics and Prose, a tiny locally-owned store in Northwest Washington. They took time to mingle with camera-phone wielding shoppers before heading to the checkout. They purchased about two dozen books, including The Lowland, by Jhumpa Lahiri, The Ballad of the Sad Cafe: Other Stories by Carson McCullers, Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews, and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.”
