Largehearted WORD Books of the Week - May 29, 2013

In the Largehearted Word series, the staff of Brooklyn's WORD bookstore highlights several new books released this week.

WORD is an independent neighborhood bookstore in Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of Brooklyn, that recently celebrated its sixth anniversary. Our primary goal is to be whatever our community needs us to be, which currently means carrying a lot of paperback fiction (especially classics), cookbooks, board books, and absurdly cute cards and stationery. In addition, we're fiends for a good event, from the classic author reading and Q&A to potlucks and a basketball league (and anything set in a bar). We're a small operation, just 1000 square feet and four people, but we read too much, so it all works out. If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbrooklyn.

WORD also hosts the monthly Largehearted Lit reading series, featuring authors who participated in this blog's Book Notes series and musical guests.

The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hand-On Living

Fascinating essays, delicious recipes, lovely illustrations, and killer packaging -- that just might change your life.

One Last Thing Before I Go

One Last Thing Before I Go

If you like hilarious and heart-rending, then Jonathan Tropper's latest (just out in paperback) is for you.

Franny's Simple Seasonal Italian

Franny's Simple Seasonal Italian
by Andrew Feinberg, Francine Stephens

If you haven't had the pleasure of dining at Franny's (on Flatbush in Brooklyn), we feel sorry for you! Now you can enjoy their simple flavors (and the luscious photos) from the comfort of your own home.

If You Want To See a Whale

If You Want To See a Whale
words by Julie Fogliano, pictures by Erin E. Stead

This is a gorgeously illustrated book that manages to be both pensive and adorable. There may be no better way to teach your child about the virtues of patience and focus.
