World Book Night
April 23, 2014
What is World Book Night?
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 is a nonprofit organization. We exist because of the support of thousands of book givers, booksellers, librarians, and financial supporters who believe in our mission. Successfully launched in the U.K. in 2011, World Book Night was first celebrated in the U.S. in 2012. Thank you to our U.K. friends for such a wonderful idea!"
World Book Night influenced activities and refreshments in meeting rooms (inspired titles in parentheses):
Kansas: Learn to make a comic book (Same Difference)
Finnup: Cultural information and sharing (When I Was Puerto Rican: A Memoir)
Hutchison: Introduction to gardening (The Botany of Desire)
