The team behind The Head & The Hand Books (H&H Books), an independent, nonprofit bookstore located in Kensington, is popping up on the Parkway! H&H Books will be offering a curated selection of fresh fiction, middle grade, children’s, and local lit titles to bookish passersby on the MAKE block. We’ll also be offering our own titles and chapbooks (pocket-sized short works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) published through The Head & The Hand Press. Don’t see what you like on hand? We do direct orders! Show your support of local lit and come on out for some open-air book browsing.
