As if we needed another reason to make a trip to the New York Public Library, a new multimedia art exhibit called “The Line King’s Library,” honoring illustrator Al Hirschfield, opened this month and runs until January 4, 2014.

The exhibit is in the Donald & Mary Oenslager Gallery inside the NYPL for the Performing Arts building.

Not only does the show boast a widespread array of Hirschfield’s film posters and drawings, it also features a rare 1969 print of legendary dancer Martha Graham.

There’s a new bookstore on the block, and it’s here just in time for our favorite season. Celebrate the changing colors of the leaves and the onslaught of pumpkin-flavored everything with Terrace Books, the sister store of Brooklyn’s Community Bookstore. While you peruse the collection of mostly used books, be sure to indulge in treats like apple cider and similar seasonal goodies. Author signings and autumn-themed activities will abound as well. Don’t miss it!
