From the Politics and Prose website:
"For 26 years, Carla Cohen, the founder and co-owner of Politics and Prose, brought her energy and intellect to building and maintaining one of the nation’s great bookstores. Please join us as we pay tribute to her incredible legacy in a memorial reception to which customers, colleagues, family and friends are invited. As the event approaches, we will continue to post more details on the website."
You may read her obituary from the Washington Post here.
