Emma Watson Is Hiding Free Books in New York City’s Subway Now

New Yorkers, watch out for sightings of Emma Watson and free books today on your daily subway commute: the actress, is distributing copies of Mom&Me&Mom, a Maya Angelou autobiography, around the city’s transit system as part of her “Our Shared Shelf” global feminist book club.

Last week, Watson was seen popping around London’s underground doing the same thing, dropping copies of the paperback for passersby with a keen eye for detail to grab. The Beauty and the Beast star partnered with Books on the Subway, a free-form grassroots book exchange. And her activity hasn’t gone unnoticed; even Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling sent her a message of support.
