Woodies HeadshotPlease join us in the Black Studies Center as Michael Lisicky (author, noted department store historian, and lecturer) discusses his latest book, Woodward & Lothrop: A Store Worthy of the Nation’s Capital.
Affectionately known as “Woodies” and regarded as Washington D.C.’s first department store and one of its most beloved businesses, the book tells the Woodward & Lothrop story from its humble beginnings on Market Space in 1880 to its iconic structure in the remote field of 11th & G streets NW. The book also features family and corporate history as well as personal remembrances.

We hope to see you there!
