Back to Back Weekend Events at WORD!

September 18, 2009

TGIF! We’re working for the weekend here at WORD…

It has been a busy week, with the Brooklyn Book Festival, plus three entertaining weeknight events (hopefully with some video to come!) Thanks to all of you for stopping by our booth at the festival and for joining us in the store this week.

But…we’re not done yet! There is no rest for literary programming this weekend at WORD – we’ve got two exciting events on tap:

andromedakleinSaturday at 4 PM – Frank Portman

The author of King Dork makes a visit to WORD to read from his latest book Andromeda Klein, a unique literary experience that is ” dark, funny, smart, and entirely unforgettable.” He’ll talk with Juliet Linderman of the Greenpoint Gazette as part of our YA NOT? reading series – a literary salon for not so young adults. Join us!

Sunday at 3 PM – Alaistair Reid

n124477020898_9075Poet, translator, essayist and New Yorker staffer since 1959, Alaistair Reid has also published many books for children. He’ll join us to read from the recently reissued classic Ounce Dice Trice – plus he’ll entertain with other silly poems and stories for both young and old to enjoy – a perfect Sunday afternoon event for the whole family – stop by the store and enjoy some WORD play with us! You can see Ounce Dice Trice brought to life in our current window display (we like the Names for Cats best), plus more photos here.
