I've already said so much about how great Word Up is, in past blog entries. So I won't bore you with all that. Instead, I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos and videos, memories of times at Word Up alongside my very good friends, neighbors, and fellow volunteers.
The slideshow below has photos dating back to 2011, three years of good times at the best darn community bookshop there ever was!
Thanks to Make Music New York we have the permit and the occasion to get busy like dozens of other venues across the city. Thanks to I LOVE MY HOOD we will have fly visual art take shape before the eye. And thanks to a CHALK grant from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, we can offer our young neighbors the fun and amazement of our first ever Kids' CSB Book Harvest (1-3pm), featuring specials, giveaways, collaborative artwork, snacks and books galore as we grow our CSB program! Come on down!
Performers will include:
The Machine, Ruben Gonzalez, NYC Brass Brothers, Circa NineFive, Poingly, Division X, Hot Knives, Alexis Marcelo, Gaga P'al Pueblo, GioSafari, Tellie Floydd, Charlie Cruz, Lethy Denise Liriano and more!
I very much look forward to celebrating with so many old friends and I do hope you'll join us -- and invite your friends and neighbors. The more the merrier!
