If you like books, films and interesting conversations—so yes, that's all of us—you'll want in on LIVE from the NYPL. The semiannual reading series returns to the iconic New York Public Library this spring with a lineup that includes maverick movie director Wes Anderson, cultural commentator and hair icon Malcolm Gladwell, and Generation X author Douglas Coupland. Who said libraries are for squares?
