About Washington Independent Review of Books
Who We Are
Welcome to the Independent, a nonprofit website dedicated to book reviews and writing about the world of books. The Independent is a labor of love produced by dozens of writers and editors mostly in the Washington, DC, area who are frustrated by the disappearance of high-quality book reviews and book-review sections in the mainstream media.
We post new content every weekday, including:
- Thoughtful reviews of books currently being released.
- Special features, such as Q&As with leading authors, essays on bookish topics, and whatever other reading-related (or just fun) pieces we think you'll enjoy.
- Links to literary events happening in and around the Washington, DC, region, including Baltimore. (Have an event coming up? Post it for free on our calendar!)
Like we said, the Independent operates as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Please consider making a donation to support our effort!
