VERONICA LIU is the founder of the non-profit, all-volunteer, Word Up Community Bookshop / Librería Comunitaria in Washington Heights. Since its founding in 2011, Word Up has become more than a bookshop: It is an art gallery, a poetry corner, a stage, and a home for Uptown artists of all languages. Word Up is also a launching pad for many cross-over initiatives, striving for equality, health awareness, and literacy. The bookstore was recently lauded for collecting and donating over 400 Spanish language books to immigrant children held in detention. It is with great honor that we are able to call this Uptown icon, Veronica Liu, our
Upstanding Person of the Year, 2019.
