WORD Presents: Anna Snoekstra and Tori Telfer for THE SPITE GAME

11/08/2018 - 7:30pm

Everyone does bad things when no one is watching, and no one captures that more aptly than Anna Snoekstra. Her thrillers are known for being intense, unique, and utterly creepy, able to paint portraits of human desperation with terrifying accuracy (and the occasional edge of freaky dolls). In her twisted third novel, The Spite Game, Snoekstra further unnerves readers, telling the story of a girl bullied in high school whose favorite game is exacting sweet, vicious revenge.

WORD Presents: M. Dean with Leslie Stein for I AM YOUNG

11/06/2018 - 7:30pm

Join us in Brooklyn as we celebrate the release of cartoonist M. Dean's gorgeous, lusciously illustrated new book I Am Young. This series of character-driven, musically minded stories is as graphically sophisticated as it is emotionally acute. Tied together by one central narrative about two teenagers who meet and fall in love after a Beatles concert in 1964, I Am Young explores how relationships evolve — both interpersonally as well as our individual and collective relationships with the culture around us.
