Postcard Thursday: Talk + Walking Tour in Greenpoint with WORD Bookstore | Sunday, June 29, at 4pm

On Sunday, June 29, at 4:00 pm we will be at WORD Bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to do a book talk, signing, and short walking tour of the Greenpoint historic district.

The event will begin at the bookstore, 126 Franklin Street, where we'll present a brief, illustrated talk about the history of the area and how Greenpoint fits in to the greater history of Brooklyn.

Then we'll walk around the neighborhood, looking at the historic architecture of the houses, shops, and churches (including St. Anthony of Padua, pictured above), circling back to end at the store. Books will be available for sale and signing.

This promises to be a fun day in Brooklyn, so if you want to know more about Greenpoint than what you've seen on Girls, please join us!

The bookstore would like a headcount, so if you are on Facebook, please go to to RSVP. Thanks.
