Readings, here and there

Travelers Diagram posts a list of recent subway book sightings. Kosinski’s Being There — never more relevant than it is right this very moment — could have been me.

Speaking of trains, if you live in the city and are willing to travel out to King’s Park on Saturday night, Pia Z. Ehrhardt, Terry Bain, John Leary (not this John Leary), and editor John Warner are reading for Night Train.

Finally, if you live elsewhere and are sick of reading about New York City events at, email Lauren Cerand listings for the travel edition of The Smart Set, her weekly events column. From Philly to Atlanta to Madrid to Buenos Aires, if you’ve got an event next week or the week after, let Lauren know by the end of the day.
