WORD Bookstores Books of the Week - December 10, 2014

In the Largehearted Word series, the staff of Brooklyn's WORD bookstore highlights several new books released this week.

WORD Bookstores are independent neighborhood bookstores in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Jersey City, New Jersey. Our primary goal is to be whatever our communities needs us to be, which currently means carrying everything from fiction to nonfiction to absurdly cute cards and stationery. In addition, we're fiends for a good event, from the classic author reading and Q&A to potlucks and a basketball league (and anything set in a bar). If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbookstores.


James Baldwin:The Last Interview

James Baldwin:The Last Interview

The great James Baldwin has his turn in the also great series from Melville House.


Here

Here
by Richard McGuire

A portrait of time and space and the people who inhabit its endless layers.


The Inheritance Trilogy

The Inheritance Trilogy
by N.K. Jemisin

Together in one volume for the first time, N.K. Jemisin's trilogy comes highly (very highly) recommended from many us here at WORD.


The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine and the Miracle That Set Them Free

The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine and the Miracle That Set Them Free
by Hector Tobar

A sobering but ultimately redemptive report on the Chilean mining disaster of 2010.
