A Night of giving the joy of reading!
World Book Night is a new event designed to share the joy of reading with as many new underserved readers as possible. What a way to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday!
50,000 volunteer book givers have been chosen in communities around the country (and the U.K. and Ireland) and will give free books to those who may not have access to books or are infrequent readers.
Registration for this year’s event is closed, but info on next year’s event is available on the website.
I am so thrilled with the 30 books chosen for this year’s give-away. I’ve read over half of them. Thrilled to see The Hunger Games there. For the complete list click here.
