Word Up: a community bookshop in Washington Heights – coming soon!

Word Up is a month-long bookshop coming to Northern Manhattan, beginning during the Uptown Arts Stroll/Paseo de las Artes. Sponsored by Vantage Residential and Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, and coordinated Fractious Press and Seven Stories Institute, Word Up will have readings, performances, workshops, talks, and more, with local writers and presses. We hope that the idea of a multi-language, general-interest bookstore in the center of the neighbourhood takes hold and that the space—whether this one, or another like it—can continue through and beyond the summer.

From June 14 to July 14, shop hours will be weekdays 4-9pm, weekends 12-4pm, with some adjustments for special events. The address is 4157 Broadway @ 175 Street. PLEASE note that the shop is no longer at 3855 Broadway, as previously advertised

We are collecting inventory for opening week and scheduling events, so please email info@fractiouspress.com to ask for the latest info, to submit an event proposal, or to receive a consignment form to sell your stuff.

This store wouldn’t be possible without the collaborative forces of folks from Vantage Residential, Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, Fractious Press, Manhattan Times, Uptown Collective, Seven Stories Institute, World War 3 Illustrated, People’s Theatre Project, Music for Daze, Washington Heights Free Radio, Vantage Properties, and many more individual writers and artists from our hood. Complete info to come soon. Thanks, everyone!

Word Up: Librería comunitaria en Washington Heights—Muy pronto!

Word Up es una librería que durará un mes, empezando con el Paseo de las Artes/Uptown Arts Stroll. Habrán lecturas, obras de teatro, talleres, discusiones, y más, con escritores y editoriales locales. Esperamos que la idea de una librería multi-lingüística de interés general en el centro de nuestro vecindario tendrá un impacto y que el proyecto—éste o uno parecido—pueda seguir durante todo el verano y después.

De junio 14 a julio 14, el horario de la librería será L-V 4-9PM, Sabado y Domingo 12-4PM, más algunas excepciones para eventos especiales. FAVOR fijase que la dirección ya no es la 3855 Broadway, como anteriormente se anunció.

Ésta librería no sería posible sin la colaboración de aquellas personas de Vantage Residential, Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, Editorial Fractious, Manhattan Times, Uptown Collective, Seven Stories Institute, World War 3 Illustrated, People’s Theatre Project, Music for Daze, Washington Heights Free Radio, Vantage Properties y muchos escritores y artistas de nuestro vecindario. Más detalles pronto. Gracias a todos!
