Last week at the annual American Booksellers Association (ABA) Winter Institute convention, Junot Díaz was one of the keynote speakers. Junot began his speech by thanking the ABA and all the booksellers and bookstores who have nourished him, not least Word Up Community Bookshop! Thank you, Junot, for the appreciation, and many thanks to the ABA for granting Word Up the opportunity to attend—with Word Up founder Veronica Liu serving on the ABA Diversity Task Force, and longtime volunteer Emmanuel Abreu attending through an ABA-sponsored scholarship, we were well represented!
