Read Globally, Buy Locally in Washington DC and Baltimore

With the holiday shopping season upon us, I am getting some inquiries about where to find Fair Trade: A Beginner's Guide. I've also been delighted recently to learn of two sellers of the book in my home and work neighborhoods. If you live in Washington, DC, please consider visiting Potter's House Books, in Mount Pleasant, which also sells Fair Trade craft items. If you live in Baltimore, the quirky Hamden area is home to Salamander Books, which specializes in used, rare, and out-of-print books. Also in Maryland, is the operation center of SERRV, which has a gift store filled with the wonderful products you know from their catalog.

Thanks for considering my writing as a potential gift, and don't forget that it is perfectly okay to read your own copy of the book and then play it forward. In these times when our economy and our planet are in peril, your recipient may appreciate even more that you are recycling!
