WORD Bookstores

WORD Bookstores has two locations with events. The Greenpoint location has more recently been undergoing a slow transformation with new lights and curtains. The second location in Jersey City provides a unique opportunity to program in the “Sixth Borough” of New York as there are no other first-run bookstores in Jersey City.

Events for both stores are on the store website.

Greenpoint

The store itself is small, but the events space, located in the basement, is generous in size. Improvements have been made in the space over the last several years.
