Christine Onorati

Christine is the owner of WORD, Greenpoint Brooklyn’s independent bookstore. After graduating from Hofstra University in 1993 with a degree in Publishing and Communications, she worked for several publishers including Scholastic, St. Martin’s Press and Aperture.

Before opening WORD in March of 2007, Christine operated a small used and new bookshop on Long Island for six years. She knew that the bookstore she envisioned could only work in a community where small business and literature were valued, and she’s thrilled she made the move to Greenpoint. WORD is a general-interest bookstore selling new books for both adults and children, with a thriving event program and online presence. You can find them on twitter, facebook, and tumblr, always keeping the conversation about books alive and well. Christine lives in Greenpoint with her husband and young son.
