Elizabeth Stacevic‘s work will be on display and for sale in the Word Up gallery throughout the month of June. Since the cloths went up a week and a half ago, half a dozen people a day have walked into the bookstore, spied the back wall, and gasped, “Those are beautiful!!!!!” Elizabeth is off to Mexico for the summer, where she works on a floor loom. We can’t wait to see what she comes back with in the fall. And in the meantime, you have June to see the selection at Word Up in person.
And, BIG NEWS! La Casa Azul Bookstore is opening tonight, with grand opening celebrations all weekend long! Celebrate East Harlem’s new independent bookstore, built by Aurora Anaya-Cerda, who also volunteered at Word Up last summer. And congratulations to all who have helped usher it into existence!
