This Month: Cream Puffs, Magicians & Dead Rock Stars
September 3, 2009
Do you get our monthly newsletter? It’s the best way to receive the detailed scoop on what is new at the store each month. Our manager Stephanie puts together an all-around entertaining and very informative bulletin. We can only offer a mini version here at the blog, so to be sure you don’t miss out on the next one, please sign up for our newsletter here.
So, what’s up this month at WORD? We’ll tell you what’s going on at WORD. More events than you can shake a stick at! Go on, shake that stick all you want. The events will still be there. We’re having a cream puff contest and a clothing swap, we’re talking about dead rock stars and the genitalia of famous people, we’re hosting awesome authors like Lev Grossman and Frank Portman. And more. Much more.
