Word Shanty—in the middle. The shanty to the left is a variation of last year’s white refrigerator shanty. This year, with black refrigerator doors, it looks ominously like a Borg ship. Inside the Word Shanty, there were books everywhere. I immediately latched onto The Grub Bag by Ita Jones. “An underground cookbook. The practical, philosophical and political aspects of food—with recipes and metaphysics.” So perfect for me! Plus they had letter tiles spelling WORD SHANTY so you could do Word Twist on ice, not just on Facebook.
