Last week Emma Watson left signed copies of Maya Angelou’s ‘Mom & Me & Mom’ in the London Underground making the rest of the world jealous. The Harry Potter star is back with more free books, this time in New York.

The actor left many copies of Angelou’s autobiography in the city’s underground train stations, this time in a partnership with city based franchise, Books On The Subway. The underground book library is inspired by London’s Books On The Underground and was started in 2013.

Both clubs functions in a similar manner, leaving free books at subway stations and people can read the books and return them once done for the next bookworm.

The UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and real-life Hermione Granger, tweeted on November 10 that she would be leaving the November choice of her feminist book club – Our Shared Self — at various stations of the New York City subway.

The Beauty and the Beast actor tweeted, “Today I am going to deliver Maya Angelou books to the New York subway.” However, what she added in her tweet left everyone in no doubt that it was related to the US Presidential election result or to be precise, Donald Trump. “Then I am going to fight even harder for all the things I believe in,” the actor added.

People were quite thrilled by her second episode of being a book fairy in New York. And even Harry Potter author JK Rowling came out in her support. They were not only excited about the free books but also about her support for fighting for a cause.
