WORD Bookstore presents Manuel Gonzales and the 1000 Word Project

Tonight, Jan. 16, Greenpoint’s WORD Bookstore presents Manuel Gonzales and the 1000 Word project. Gonzales’s debut collection of short stories, “The Miniature Wife: And Other Stories” has been praised for its seamless fusion of the familiar and the fantastical. The book includes 18 memorable stories that paint relate-able yet unique depictions of relationships.

Photographer Emily Raw and musician Ellia Bisker, co-conspirators of the 1000 Words project, will join Gonzales for a multimedia reading. As part of the project, Emily Raw, a Greenpoint-based photographer, shoots portraits that inspire Gonzales’s short stories.

Manuel Gonzales lives in Austin, Texas, with his family. A graduate of Columbia’s creative writing program, he has published fiction and nonfiction in Open City, Fence, One Story, Esquire, McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, and The Believer.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. WORD is located at 126 Franklin Street in Greenpoint.
