Emma Watson Is at It Again: She’s Hidden Books in NYC’s Subway System


Need some subway reading material? Emma Watson has you covered.

Watson, 26, took to the New York City subway system on Wednesday to hide copies of Maya Angelou’s autobiography Mom & Me & Mom for a few lucky commuters to find.

“Today I am going to deliver Maya Angelou books to the New York subway,” she tweeted. “Then I am going to fight even harder for all the things I believe in.”

She later posted a photo of herself tucking a book into 23rd St. station subway platform.

This isn’t the first time Watson has served as a book fairy. She previously passed out novels throughout London’s subway network.

The Beauty and the Beast star’s book sharing stems from a collaboration between her female-focused book club, called Our Shared Shelf, and Books on the Underground, a community project that encourages people to hide their favorite books for others to discover.

Mom & Me & Mom is the November and December pick for Watson’s book club. It’s a memoir that tracks Angelou’s relationship with her mother, which transformed from one of pain to one of deep love.
