After adding a Shakespearean twist to Star Wars in books like Jedi the Last and The Force Doth Awaken, Ian Doescher is back to take on two more cinematic classics: Mean Girls and Back to the Future, or in the parlance of the Bard, Much Ado About Mean Girls and Get Thee Back to the Future. WORD is excited to welcome Ian to Brooklyn to celebrate the release of these two new hilarious books. It's not on a Wednesday, so you don't have to wear pink, but if you do, thou canst definitely sit with us.
Please note that admission to this event requires either a purchase of Much Ado About Mean Girls, Get Thee Back to the Future, OR a $5 admission voucher. Books and vouchers can be purchased online in advance or at the door on the day of the event; advance orders will be available for pickup at the store on the day of the event. The admission voucher functions like a gift card and is good toward $5 off anything in store at WORD on the day of the event only.

Power struggles. Bitter rivalries. Jealousy. Betrayals. Star-crossed lovers. When you consider all these plot points, it’s pretty surprising William Shakespeare didn’t write Mean Girls.
In the iconic film by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, teenaged Marty McFly travels back in time from the 1980s to the 1950s, changing the path of his parents’ destiny . . . as well as his own.
$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.
