If you've visited our Jersey City store in the past few months, then you know that WORD has been partnering with the NEA Big Read on events surrounding the 2019 pick, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. On April 3, the month of bookish fun will culminate in an author talk featuring Emily St. John Mandel herself. The evening will begin with a performance by the Cantigas Women's Choir, then Emily will take the stage with the director of Jersey City's Educational Arts Team. Got a question for Emily? Submit it here in advance.
This event will take place at the NJCU School of Business, located at 200 Hudson Street in Jersey City. It is free, but RSVP via Eventbrite is encouraged.
