World Book Night

23 April 2021

World Book Night is the annual celebration of books and reading on 23 April that brings people from all backgrounds together for one reason - to inspire others to read more. Presented by The Reading Agency in partnership with Specsavers, in 2021 they're celebrating their 10th anniversary. 

There's an exciting night planned with the British Library with free online events: Kazuo Ishiguro in conversation with Kate Mosse; #ReadingHour; and World Book Night presents: Books to Make You Smile, hosted by Sandi Toksvig. The last-mentioned event also features Jamie Byng of Canongate Books. These online events are free but booking is essential.

You can also download one of three free audiobooks!
