Bookstore Visit: WORD Brooklyn September 10, 2009

Filed under: Bookstore Visits — kidsbookcorner @ 6:10 pm

What could be better than getting to hang out in all sorts of wonderful bookstores? On Tuesday I had the pleasure of visiting WORD, a small but perfectly-stocked 3-year-old bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. WORD is much fabled in the bookselling community and I had been wanting to visit it for ages. I know three quarters of WORD’s staff: manager Stephanie Anderson (@bookavore on Twitter – visit her blog), owner Christine Onorati, and events-mastermind Kelly Amabile, and this trifecta of girlpower has done quite a lot with their thousand-square-foot store. (Awesome side note: WORD’s logo colors totally match my blog! A match made in heaven, I say.)

Let’s see some pictures!

So, the next time you’re in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, be sure to visit WORD! But if you’re too far away, you can always visit their website or call them up to chat (718.383.0096). Oh, and be sure to follow Stephanie on Twitter and become a fan of their Facebook page! One can never show his or her bookstore allegiance too much.
