Join us at WORD Greenpoint for a special musical storytime featuring author Carolyn Sloan!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Kids love music. They’re natural singers and dancers, and they improvise every time they play. They were born for jazz! And Welcome to Jazz was made for them.

WORD is excited to celebrate the release of Leland Cheuk's new book No Good Very Bad Asian at our Greenpoint location. The evening will begin with stand-up comedy by Wilson McDermut and Cindee Weiss, followed by a discussion between Leland Cheuk and fellow author Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan.
Fiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. Meet Sirius Lee, a fictive famous Chinese American comedian. He's a no good, very bad Asian. He's not good at math (or any other subject, really). He has no interest in finding a 'good Chinese girlfriend.' And he refuses to put any effort into becoming the CEO/Lawyer/Doctor his parents so desperately want him to be.
A brilliant and utterly engaging novel—Emma set in modern Asia—about a young woman’s rise in the glitzy, moneyed city of Singapore, where old traditions clash with heady modern materialism.
$5 admission to this event at our Brooklyn store. Your $5 admission voucher functions like a gift card and can be used toward anything in store on the night of the event only.

ABOUT THE BOOK
"Let's scare bear!" says the tiny mouse. But the pint-size bully's plan backfires in this takeoff of a Japanese tale.
Mouse, Fox, Spider, and Snake all want to scare Bear. But Bear is the bravest animal in the forest--nothing scares Bear.
Except, maybe, one thing.
