World Book Night U.S. is a non-profit campaign launched in the UK in 2011 and in the U.S. in 2012, that empowers book givers to give out a half million new books, all on one day, to light or non-readers. Many of the book recipients are also without the means or access to printed books by virtue of income or geography.
On April 23 Shakespeare's birthday25,000 volunteer book givers hand out in a deliberate and thoughtful fashion specially-printed paperback books in 6,200 towns and cities across America. For more information, visit www.us.worldbooknight.org.
