The Weekly WORD
- On Tuesday, November 5th, at 7 p.m., we’ll host a reading from Emily Books vetted essayist Samantha Irby. Author of the essay collection Meaty, Irby also co-hosts readings of her own: notably, the sex-tacular Sunday Night Sex Show, as well as Guts & Glory. Well, well, well. Let’s see what she brings to WORD’s turf. (We’re pretty sure it’ll be greatness.)
- YA fans unite and rejoice: we are hosting an EARLY release party for Arin Greenwood’s Save the Enemy on Wednesday, September 6th. The night begins at 7 p.m. and proceedings include a conversation between Greenwood and fellow Huffington Post editor Carly Schwartz, a Q&A session, and signing. Amazing, right? Right,
- On Thursday, November 7th, at 7 p.m., we’ll welcome New York chronicler Pete Hamill (Forever, Tabloid City). He’ll tell us a Brooklyn tale or two from his newly-available collection The Christmas Kid. To experience New York today through stories of the way it once was—this is a treat only Hamill can deliver. Don’t miss out!
- Sunday, November 10th, at 2 p.m., we welcome the return of the Gotham Writers’ Workshop; this time the workshop will be hosted by screenwriter extraordinaire Raven Burnett. Got a few ideas for a play or movie? A completed work? Maybe you just want to get inspired? This is for you. Bring pages if you have ‘em!
We’re on our way now, people. To what? Who knows. But we’re definitely on our way. Mhm, mhm. Coming up next week: a reading from Ranbir Singh Sidhu and Lynne Tillman; Tara Conklin and Charles Dubow; and, oh, you know, just a little bit of Herman Melville mayhem. Oh yeah.
