World Book Night: Looking For Volunteers To Give Away 1 Million Free Books

Ever heard of World Book Night? If not, you will. Because they want your help to give away free books.

WBN first launched in the UK last year. It takes place on April 23rd, a date designated by UNESCO as World Book Day. This is because it’s the date when, in 1616, both Shakespeare and Cervantes died(though not actually the same day), as well being the date of a Catalan festival involving book giving.  Learn more at this re-post from the Huffington Post.
