In the latest issue of Time Out NY, 50 reasons why NYC is the greatest city in the world, Word Up is mentioned as part of reason #27! That reason is “Because the city is in the throes of an independent-bookstore renaissance.” We are so excited to have us mentioned along with other amazing bookstores like Bureau of General Services–Queer Division, powerHouse Arena , WORD, Greenlight Bookstore, McNally Jackson, Housing Works and BookCourt.
There is also a new article about us on DNAINFO entitled Word Up Book Shop Hopes to Reopen before the End of Spring. Check that out here.
Reminder: This Sunday we will be at a live reading by Jerome Rothenberg at NoMAA (178 Bennett Avenue, 3rd Floor) at 2pm. Come on by and say hi, enjoy a live reading, buy some books, and best of all it’s free! (rsvp here firstname.lastname@example.org)
