There is truly something for everyone at Word for Word, which has nine different subcategories of events. Pick up a free book, courtesy of Oxford University Press, and join in one of six Book Club discussions. Or brush up on your history in July and August with Civil War lectures at Word for Word 101. Film buffs can enjoy Word for Word Reel Talks, while waiting for the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival to start each Monday night. Reel Talks will include film trivia, chances to win a Film Fest snack pack, and drawings for a DVD copy of the evening's featured film.
