This is exciting news for us here in downtown JC. A new bookstore is opening by Grove Street at a time when everyone is pronouncing books dead and done. And not just any bookstore, but the Greenpoint one my friend Kelly used to work at, Word Brooklyn. If you've been around here a while, you might remember the event I attended there in support of Forking Fantastic. Or you might not—that was way back in 2009. You can refresh your memory here.
