World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the joy 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. In 2012, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany.
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.
World Book Night will be celebrated globally on April 23 2013. In the United States, we will once again be looking for 25,000 passionate volunteers to give away copies of specially chosen and printed WBN editions in their community.
