Find That Book Around NYC!: Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here

Inspired by Emma Watson hiding copies of Maya Angelou’s book Mom & Me & Mom in the New York City subway and the London Underground as part of Books on the Underground’s project to bring new and used books to travelers initiative, the interns of McIntosh & Otis visited some of NYC’s iconic landmarks to place copies of It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis across Manhattan. Due to the book’s parallels to the current political environment, It Can’t Happen Here is a timely book that deserves to be read. We have placed these books with post-its asking passerby to “read me.” See if you can find any! If you do, please tweet @McintoshAndOtis with your picture of the book!
