I received 20 copies of the “100 Best-Loved Poems” from World Book Night, to be given away on April 23, 2014.
World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.
World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.
This is the first year I participate in the World Book Night event @wbnamerica. I am proud to be a book lover and I am excited to be a book giver.
