This event will take place at our Brooklyn location. Calling all Murakami fans! Come and read your favorite passage from any of his books as we count down the hours until the release of his newest novel, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. Those wishing to read should email brooklyn@wordbookstores.com with their selection so we can avoid duplicates. The event starts at 10:30 p.m. and a pre-paid pre-order of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, either in-store or online, is necessary to attend.

We're excited to announce that WORD will have a small number of super-limited-edition signed copies of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki that will only be available to attendees! We'll have a raffle and winners will receive a signed copy when they pick up their pre-order at midnight -- you must be present to win (and also to eat donuts and drink wine).
