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.
