On Friday, July 26 Word Up Community Bookshop will be reopening at their brand new location, 2113 Amsterdam Avenue. Be sure to stop by for the celebration at 6PM!
Word Up is a multi-language, general-interest community bookshop and arts space in Washington Heights, committed to preserving and building a neighborhood in which all residents help each other to live better informed and more expressive lives, using books as an instrument of reciprocal education and exchange, empowering not only themselves, but their community.
By hosting literary readings, music concerts, film screenings, theater productions, art openings, workshops, community meetings and talks, language salons, and other activities for kids and adults, we do our best to support and fortify the creative spirit unique to our diverse, uptown community.
Word Up is 100% volunteer-powered, and has had over 80 volunteers since its original opening in 2011.
