Greenlight Bookstore just announced that it's teaming up with BAM in an old-meets-new Fort Greene power partnership. The bookshop will operate two BAM kiosks, one at the Peter Jay Sharp Building and one in the BAM Harvey Theater. They'll both carry books on Brooklyn, New York, and the performances on stage, and they'll both sell BAM merchandise, as will Greenlight's website.
This news comes on the heels of Greenlight's expansion into the space next door to their Fulton Street store, where they're collaborating with Greene Grape on a coffee shop. In a summer dominated by the demise of Borders, it's good to hear about any growing book-seller, but Greenlight is a particularly heartwarming story: The shop opened in 2009 after the neighborhood came together in support of a local place to buy books. How often does that happen?
