World Book Night

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

On April 23, 25,000 volunteers from Kodiak to Key West will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities 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 lovers will help promote reading by going into their communities and handing out free copies of a book they love, often 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.
