Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

National Book Lovers Day

August 9th is National Book Lovers Day! So get out and read, buy books, and visit libraries. New York City is the ideal place to observe the day, with its many bookstores and comfortable spots to read, from parks to atriums. If the art of books is your thing, check out exhibits at the Grolier Club or the rotunda at the New York Public Library featuring its murals detailing the history of the written word. Or enjoy a visit to the J.P. Morgan Library where one of the great book collector’s three Gutenberg Bibles is always on display. And if you simply want to lie out in the park and read, New York City has been the subject of some of the greatest books ever written, whether by Edith Wharton, Truman Capote, Ralph Ellison, or Ayn Rand. Happy National Book Lovers Day!
