WORD Bookstores Books of the Week - July 15, 2015

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

WORD Bookstores are independent neighborhood bookstores in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Jersey City, New Jersey. Our primary goal is to be whatever our communities needs us to be, which currently means carrying everything from fiction to nonfiction to 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). If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbookstores.

Between the World and Me

Between the World and Me
by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Take it from many of us at WORD (and from Toni Morrison): Between the World and Me should be required reading.

About a Girl

About a Girl
by Sarah McCarry

Staff favorite Sarah McCarry's latest installment in her Metamorphoses series.

Almost Famous Women

Almost Famous Women
by Megan Meyhew Bergman

Bergman's collection, new to paperback, includes tales from the lives of historical women who in their time were close to fame but eclipsed by the famous.

Poetry Is Useless

Poetry Is Useless
by Anders Nilsen

The master of existential pointillism brings out a sketchbook within a book.
