Books Beneath the Bridge: Freebird Bookstore

July 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sponsored by AT&T and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, Freebird Bookstore will be hosting a unique outdoor Scrabble competition between John D. Williams, Jr. (former Executive Director of the National SCRABBLE Association and author of the new book, WORD NERD) and three time national champion Joe Edley.

This special match, fought on a giant 15 x 15 foot board designed for the occasion, will be a master class in technique and wordplay. John and Joe will also be on hand to tell their own anecdotes about the world of competitive Scrabble.
