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.
Everything I Never Told You
by Celeste Ng
One of our favorite and most engrossing novels from last year is now out in paperback.
by John Waters
New in paperback, you haven't really seen our country until you've seen it through John Waters' eyes.
by Sally Mann
Riddled with stunning images (no surprise), this unique memoir delves into Mann's distant and more recent pasts and leaves the reader sifting through treasure troves of insight.
Long before Stephen Colbert or The Onion or snopes.com, Orson Welles's much discussed and misinterpreted radio play toyed with public perception and made people question the veracity of news.
