“We Were the Lucky Ones” is a Grand Central Reads selection!

Penguin Random House just launched GRAND CENTRAL READS in partnership with Grand Central Terminal. It’s a website that offers visitors to the station free extended excerpts of popular books, including We Were the Lucky Ones. The innovative program was created in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that preserved the iconic terminal as a historic landmark (and prohibited the construction of a 53-story office building overhead). Watch for posters in the station and on Metro North trains and platforms, and check out the wonderful selection of books.
