Uptown Check-In, the Return of Story Time, ¡y más!

[See the full 3/27/20 newsletter—with books & online events!—here.]

Hi neighbors, How are you? We hope that you are staying home if you can. We miss you and would like to check in. So, we are having an Uptown Check-In today on Zoom, 8pm–9pm! No agenda, just BYOB and stop by whenever you can for that hour. At 8pm, click this link to join. Because we could all use more togetherness, we are doing our best to bring back events. Join us for the return of Word Up Story Time this Saturday @ 11am! On Instagram Live, Emmanuel Abreu will be reading the bilingual children's picture book that the Word Up Collective created together in 2013, Home at Word Up: A Story of a Bookshop in Washington Heights/En casa en Word Up:

Una historia de una librería en Washington Heights.

Would you like to have a virtual event with us? Fill out this form and let us know your ideas. Below are events, workshops, and book clubs by Word Up partners that they are hosting on their own platforms—both events that were originally scheduled to take place at the shop, and others too. If you need help sorting out all the options for other virtual activities, check out our volunteer Julie's Things to do Virtually While Quarantined Because of Rona. and more in her part 2, Forced Rona Vacation. And if you have been looking for varios recursos educativos y lúdicos online gratis en español, volunteer Claudine has compiled some here (will be continually updated). If you missed our last status update, and ways you can help Word Up, other community members, and other bookstores, check out our last newsletter here. And last but certainly not least, to those of you who did read our last status update, and purchased books, donated, and shared love—THANK YOU!!! We love you too, and are, like you, looking forward to coming out on the other side. Wishing you our best <3, Word Up Collective
