Reading Room

New Reader

New York

February 18 – March 28, 2021

Whaam! presents Reading Room by New Reader. Reading Room is a library of books selected by artists, musicians, scientists, educators, public figures and more in response to the question: In isolation, what parts of yourself have you recovered?

Reading Room’s contents are available online accompanied by a directory of every independent bookstore in New York City. A printed version, featuring illustrations by Whaam! artist Hunter Ney is available in bookstores throughout the five boroughs.

New Reader is an online library that organizes books by people. Through interviews, New Reader catalogs the sources that shape their minds. | @newreadernet
