Politics and Prose's Carla F. Cohen 1936-2010

This is one of my all-time favorite bookstores, and they've had a lot of cartoonists come through in recent years. Ms. Cohen was one of the two owners. Politics and Prose's release follows.

Carla F. Cohen

With deep sorrow, I am writing to inform our friends and neighbors that my beloved store co-owner Carla Cohen died this morning. For all of us here at Politics & Prose, it is difficult to believe that someone larger than life is gone, and I will deeply miss my friend and partner. In lieu of flowers, her family has requested that contributions may be made to Jews United for Justice, the Washington Literacy Council or Community Hospice

A funeral will be held at Tifereth Israel, 7701 16th Street, N.W.
 at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 13th.
The store will be closed from 12- 4 p.m. on that day.
We will have a memorial service in the store at a date to follow in November.
Apart from this closing, all other events will proceed as scheduled.) 

Please read the obituary from the Washington Post here.
We welcome and encourage your condolences, tributes, and memories here.
