World Book  Night 2013 booksOn Wednesday 23 April our Learning Resources Centre (LRC) will be a giver for the first time in World Book Night 2014.

World Book Night celebrates books and reading and takes place annually on 23 April which is the date of William Shakespeare’s birth and the death of the Spanish novelist Cervantes. Due to the importance of the date the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) named it the International Day of the Book.

As a book giver our LRC team selected books from the 2014 booklist. We’ve picked books that will appeal to our students;  two Quick Reads

The Perfect Murder by Peter James

Hello Mum by Bernadine Evaristo

and Armistead Maupin’s novel Tales of the City.

We’ll be giving copies of the books away to our learners and having an evening event to celebrate. In preparation we’ve ordered the DVD of Tales of the City for our students to borrow.

This year anyone can be a World Book Night Giver. You can give anyone a book you own or bought. If you’d like to do this you can register on the World Book Night website and get the chance to enter a prize draw.

You can take part by attending a World Book Night event up and down the United Kingdom.
