Scribd Brings Free Reading to Everyone in New York!
In partnership with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and in support of the inaugural One Book, One New York campaign, Scribd is giving everyone in the city of New York free access to Americanah—the book that voters chose for the nation’s largest community read—as well as a free 90-day subscription to Scribd.
The One Book, One New York campaign was launched to encourage all New Yorkers to come together and read the same book. More than 45,000 readers cast their votes, choosing from a shortlist of highly acclaimed novels: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Sellout by Paul Beatty, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, and the winning novel Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Said CEO Trip Adler, “At Scribd, we’re all about giving people everything they need to become their best selves. That’s why we are so excited to be a part of One Book, One New York, which not only encourages New Yorkers to read more, but also to join in on thoughtful, community-driven discussions. We look forward to encouraging New Yorkers to listen to the Americanah audiobook, as well as providing three free months of Scribd so readers can explore content from our many New York-based book, audiobook, and magazine publishing partners.”
