No Access Washington, DC features behind-the-scenes stories and images of hidden spots in and around the Nation’s Capital, pulling back the curtain on a collection of spaces that most people don’t have access to see, rarely see, or don’t know how to see.

Journey deep into historic archives, embassies, theaters, studios…and even a certain (cough, cough) synagogue in Chinatown. Explore some of DC’s most iconic buildings like the massive undercroft below the Lincoln Memorial and the roof of the Washington National Cathedral, plus discover hidden-in-plain-sight wonders such as the mini Washington Monument and a sauna in the Embassy of Finland.

Hear from representatives from some of the places featured in the book, including Helena Liikanen-Renge, the press counselor at the Embassy of Finland, and Janet Folkerts, the museum curator at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

This is Beth Kanter’s sixth book about Washington, DC, her favorite city and subject. Kanter’s writing and photographs have appeared in national newspapers, magazines, and online. Emily Goodstein is a digital strategy consultant, sheet cake enthusiast, photographer, rabble rouser and native Washingtonian. Kanter and Goodstein have also collaborated to produce Washington, DC Chef’s Table and Great Food Finds Washington, DC. Book signing to follow.
