World Book Night 2014

None
Wednesday April 23
One of 2300 bookstores and libraries to give half a million free books across America.

World Book Night U.S. is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially-printed paperbacks to light or non-readers. Volunteer book givers help promote reading by going into our communities and handing out free copies to those without means or access to a printed book. 

With the organizational support of local bookstores and libraries, they’ll be sharing them in locations such as hospitals, mass transit, nursing homes, food pantries, underfunded schools and more. This is not a random giveaway, but a person-to-person, carefully planned outreach.

World Book Night takes place on April 23, 2014 – Shakespeare’s birthday – and is in its third year in the U.S., after the UK launch in 2011. WBN US’s reach includes all 50 states, Puerto Rico, USVI, and overseas military bases.

World Book Night is making a short, free original e-book available to everyone at their website on April 22. It contains ten short essays by booksellers, librarians and authors who were also givers.

The WBN picks are by a wide array of award-winning and bestselling adult and YA authors, as well as classics, books in Spanish, and books in Large Print. The assortment of WBN titles is based on diversity in subject matter, age level, gender, ethnicity and geography. The books were chosen in a vote by librarians, booksellers, and last year’s givers.

More information, including FAQs and links to all social media– including giver experiences and photographs - is at www.us.worldbooknight.org
