World Book Night 2012!

Could this event be any more perfect for WNBA members? On April 23, volunteers will give away a million books to promote reading. Started in the UK, this is the first year for the US program. You can apply to be a volunteer book-giver at www.us.worldbooknight.org but you must register by Feb 1. You choose the book you want to give from a list of 30 titles and you’ll be directed where to pick up 20 copies of a special-edition paperback. When you apply, you need to specify where, to whom, and why you want to give the books. The website explains it all. Trivia question: why was the April 23rd date chosen? Come on all you English lit majors, you know the answer…
