World Book NIght


World Book Night

World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books. Tens of thousands of people will share books with others in their communities across America to spread the joy and love of reading on April 23, 2012. Launched in the UK and Ireland in 2011, this event is supported by publishers, authors, libraries, booksellers and distributors.

World Book night is intended to seek out reluctant adult readers, who are shopping or traveling to and from work. Volunteer givers will hand out 20 copies of a book they love to individuals. Thirty books listed on http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/ will be made available for free. Publisher and authors have agreed to give away their work for free. Printing, binding and production and shipping costs have also been donated. The special editions are not for resale.

April 23 is the UNESCO International Day of the Book, chosen in honor of Shakespeare and Cervantes.

Although the books and givers have been chosen for this year, if you are interested in participating check out the web address above for information about next year.

You'll need to send us a reminder because, being a senior, I won't remember about this one. Sounds like a great idea!

Morgan,

Will you graduate this year? Congratulations! I put the blog up now because I know I will forget the date soon.
:-)

Warren, I love this concept!

Morgan, I don't think it was well-publicized this year because it was the beginning. We'll try to put up a post by one of us next year in plenty of time for folks to sign up.
