The visit to the bookstore just north of Dupont Circle at 1517 Connecticut Avenue NW was meant to draw attention to the Small Business Saturday shopping campaign. Kramerbooks has been at the location since 1976.
President and Mrs. Obama have visited the neighborhood before, with a date-night dinner at Komi on 17th Street NW in May 2010.
