Carla Cohen is co-owner of Politics & Prose Bookstore. Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade began in a small store at 5010 Connecticut in the autumn of 1984, by themselves and a part-time employee who worked at night. Before a year was up, there were two full-time employees. By 1988-89 there were a half-dozen and the store was bursting. They moved across the street to 5015 in the summer of 1989, and since then we have grown at intervals of every three years. They now occupy 10,000 square feet of sales space, and close to 13,000 feet, including offices and café. They have a staff of 50-55 full-time employees.
