Today in Williamsburg

Reminder that if you haven't gotten your book yet, stop by the Degenerate Craft Fair from 5-10pm this evening at 303 Grand in Williamsburg at the corner of Havemayer. Hope to see you there!

Where Is Your Book?

Posted by We Make a Book (Creator)

Hi everybody --

For those of you still without a book: WE SUCK! We tried to schedule a date and then that kind of faded away and then... nothing. But we're fixing that.

You will have FIVE chances to pick up your book in the month of December. Kickstarter will be manning a table at the Degenerate Craft Fair in NYC, and we will have copies of New York Makes a Book on-hand. The dates, locations, and times are as follows:

December 4th (8pm – 12am)
Silent Barn

December 13
Sunday: noon to 10pm
303 Grand, Brooklyn

December 18 – 19th
Friday: noon to 9pm (reception 7-9pm)
Saturday: noon to 6pm
BravinLee Programs
526 W 26th street

If you are planning to come to one of those dates, let us know if you could. Would be good to know roughly how many books to bring. If you can't make any of those dates and you are in NYC, we (Kickstarter) will have an office in the near future and you'll be able to stop by. If you are out of NYC and are lacking a book, send us a message.

We love you all! Happy holidays!

If You Still Need a Book...

Posted by We Make a Book (Creator)

Hi everyone. When we first launched the project we specifically asked for just New Yorkers because we weren't raising money to ship any books, solely to get them printed. Still, not everyone has gotten theirs yet, and we want to get that straightened away.

If you haven't yet gotten your book, please respond in the comments to this post. We're thinking we'll throw a second book gathering -- this one much more low-key -- and people can come out and pick up their copies. And if you are not in NYC, you could simply send a friend to grab your copy. Sound good?

Please respond in the comments if you still need a book. We'll do our best to find a date that works for as many people as possible. Cheers!

Reminder: NY Makes a Book Party is TONIGHT!

Posted by We Make a Book (Creator)

We hope to see everyone there. It's at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker): Bring your friends.

If you cannot make the party but want your book, consider sending a friend to come and pick it up. We'd be glad to pass it along through them.

Thanks! We can't wait to meet everyone.
