The Weeky WORD
- Tonight, September 16th, at the stroke of midnight, Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge will enter the world. So, naturally, starting at 10:30 p.m., we’re celebrating with drinks, games, a special “Thomas Pynchon: This is Your Life” presentation, and readings from the oeuvre by Brad Nelson, Miles Klee, Tobias Carroll, Hamdan Azhar, and Walter Strafford. Oh come on, stay up late with us. You’re a Pynchon fan; you don’t sleep.
- Tuesday, September 17th, at 6:30 p.m., we’ll welcome Leila Sales into the store for the launch of her new YA novel, This Song Will Save Your Life. Join us for storytelling, a reading, Q&A, and refreshments, followed by a trip to the No Lights No Lycra dance party at 8 p.m. Books! Music! Lights! Fun! How about all of the above?
- On September 20th, at 7 p.m., music writer and karaoke diehard Rob Sheffield will be hosting karaoke night in the WORD basement! This is a ticketed event, so get yours here and prepare to sing, to croon, to wail your heart out. All ticket purchases are good for $10 off Sheffield’s new book, Turn Around Bright Eyes: The Rituals of Love & Karaoke.
- On Saturday, September 21st, two of our book groups are scheduled to meet. First, at 1 p.m., YA Not? will discuss staff favorite All Our Pretty Songs by Sarah McCarry. Then, at 3 p.m., the Brit Lit Book Group will talk Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisted. As always, book group selections are 10% off. Get yours today!
Time keeps on slippin, slippin. Ugh, so true. Anyway, next week we’ve got lucid dreaming, board game night, Music Writing Book Group, and a fiction writing class from the Gotham Writers Workshop. See you soon!
