Largehearted WORD Books of the Week - July 10, 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: @wordbookstores.

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

Don't Kiss Me

Don't Kiss Me
by Lindsay Hunter

Hunter's collection of short stories is filled with flawed, mistake prone characters and messy situations that we can all relate to in some way.

I Wear the Black Hat

I Wear the Black Hat
by Chuck Klosterman

Klosterman tackles the concept of the "villain" head on in his much anticipated book.

Love Letter to the Earth

Love Letter to the Earth
by Thich Nhat Hanh

Zen master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh eloquently explains how our personal happiness is directly connected to the happiness of the world.

The Best of Connie Willis

Science fiction? Sharp wit? Award-winning stories? Yes to all of the above!
