Community Happenings: Word Up: A Bookstore “Pops Up” In Northern Manhattan

June is here, and that means it is time for the annual Uptown Arts Stroll.  This year, the multi-talented Veronica Liu is making sure we remember that the “Arts” include the literary, as well as the visual and performing, arts. Veronica is the mastermind behind “Word Up,” a pop-up bookstore where uptown writers and artists will sell their books and other work on consignment and give performances and workshops open to the community.

Word Up will be open for one month, beginning Tuesday, June 14, at 4157 Broadway (at 175th Street).  Shop hours will be 4PM to 9PM on weekdays and noon to 4PM on weekends, with some scheduling variations to accommodate special events. To get information on selling your books, zines, and other goodies through consignment or on hosting a performance, event, or workshop, contact Veronica at fartoocanadian@gmail.com or info@fractiouspress.com.

Word Up is sponsored by NoMAA and Vantage Residential and coordinated by Fractious Press and Seven Stories Institute. Veronica is publisher of Fractious Press and Managing Editor of Seven Stories Press, which is affiliated with Seven Stories Institute.  She is also one of the creative forces behind Washington Heights Free Radio, which broadcasts the audio from events held by the Sunday Best Reading Series.  Read more about Veronica and Word Up at Karen the Small Press Librarian and Shelf Awareness.
