Whether you play Words with Friends on your smart phone or you stick to the traditional Scrabble board game, head to Brooklyn’s powerHouse Arena next Thursday, December 13, at 7pm, for a chance to brush up on your skills with Brooklynite David Bukszpan, a resident word game expert (who also happens to be an author and book publicist). In his recently published Is That a Word?, Bukszpan traces the history of popular word games while highlighting unusual words and proper names that exist within the language he calls ‘Scrabblish.’ He will discuss his book and offer tips and strategies to fellow word game lovers. Come ready to learn, but also to play: both Scrabble and Bananagram sets will be available for audience use!
The event will begin at 7pm. powerHouse Arena is located at 37 Main Street in Dumbo.
