COVID-19 Update

March 30: In his March 30 press briefing, Governor Northam continues to say that businesses like Prince Books may remain open to customers as long as we practice social distancing. We are currently processing many online, email and phone orders, and we continue to receive boxes from our wholesaler and publishers. You are welcome to request curbside delivery, or you may come into the store. We spray the counter and the doors throughout the day. Please continue to order from us! Thank you for your business.

 

For now, Prince Books intends to remain open. If you would like a book and don't want to come into the store, please call us with your book request and credit card number, (or place order at  prince-books.com), tell us that you would like us to bring your purchase out to your car. Park on Martin's Lane next to the back door, and call us so we can run your purchase out to you. 

 In the meantime we'll be closing daily at 5 p.m.  Thank you for your business!

Author Richard Rothstein takes a bold stance on neighborhood segregation in America in his latest book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America (2017).

In the book, Rothstein documents how American cities became so racially divided and book examines how federal, state, and local governments systematically imposed residential segregation.

Rothstein will discuss the book at a public lecture at The Attucks Theatre in Norfolk at 7 p.m. on April 29. The event is free.

Rothstein is a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. He also is a Senior Fellow, emeritus, of both the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Haas Institute at the University of California (Berkeley).
