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 new and not-so-new books.
- Q&As with leading authors, essays, podcasts, and whatever other literary (or just fun) pieces we think you’ll enjoy.
- Links to bookish events happening in and around the Washington, DC, region. (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!
