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 major newspapers.
We post new content every day, 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? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Like we said, the Independent operates as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Please consider making a donation to support our effort!
