It’s just too nice to stay at home this weekend. The Weather Channel is forecasting some great temperatures… and a few clouds. But don’t let a chance of a large collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals keep you inside. You should get Out & About this weekend have some bookish fun.
Below are a few fun things to do this weekend.
Jewelry from Books
This exhibition features the work of five international artists who transform the pages of books and newspapers into unique works of wearable art jewelry.
These artists are storytellers, who utilize the printed word as their form of expression. Whether using publications in their entirety, or simply using a few sheets of print, these artists give new life to the printed page.
In the spirit of “intellectual recycling”, discarded newspapers and old books – literature, history and news – are given a second chance as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings.
The show will be on view through April 24th.

World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books to inspire literacy in both adults and children. The United States’ official partnership with World Book Night ended last year due to “lack of outside funding.”
This year YPG members will give away their own books on the steps of the New York Public Library—flash mob style.
Drop by and say hello.
Where: New Public Library (5th and 42nd)
When: Saturday, April 23rd at 3:30pm
