"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." www.worldbooknight.org
What does this mean for alt+library? Well, Jess and I have signed up to be World Book Night givers and we're inviting you to join us in handing out books. There is a catch--we're supposed to hand out the books we've been granted for World Book Night ourselves--so, if you want to participate, bring a favorite book of your own to hand out. We'll meet up at Peet's and fan out from there. We did this last year and it was a lot of fun, people like free books.
