Occasionally we go for the Modified Beyoncé or Inchworm, but our favorite way to read is relatively straight-forward: 

1.         Pick up a book.

2.         Open the book.

3.         Read the book.

4.         Pass it on.

In this spirit, we teamed up with PEN World Voices Festival, Architectural League of New York, and Little Free Library, Ltd. to craft a station for reading, designed by Matter Practice.

Introducing the Little Free Library x Warby Parker, a mobile collection of books set outside each stop along our Class Trip itinerary.

Our first batch of books has been selected by British writer Salman Rushdie, and each one is marked with a signature stamp.

If you can’t make it to the bus, take Rushdie’s book list with you to your local library:

Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman

The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Collected Stories, Eudora Welty

The Complete Stories, Bernard Malamud

Humboldt’s Gift, Saul Bellow

Portnoy’s Complaint, Philip Roth

Everything That Rises Must Converge, Flannery O’Connor

Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut

V., Thomas Pynchon

Catch-22, Joseph Heller

Beloved, Toni Morrison

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Michael Chabon
