World Book Day - April 23
World Book Day or World Copyright Day is an annual event held on April 23 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote reading, book publishing and copyright.
World Book Day was first celebrated on April 23, 1995.
The reason why Book Day was celebrated on this date is that in 1923, booksellers in Spain celebrated this day as a memorial to the author Miguel de Cervantes who passed away on this date. In 1995 UNESCO decided that this day would be Book and Copyright Day, also due to the fact that it is the anniversary of the deaths of William Shakespeare and the Inca Garcilso de la Vega and several other prominent members.
If you want to join countries that celebrate International Book Day, such as the US, England, Sweden, Spain and more, you can spend time reading, visiting the library, buying books, spending time in a reading club and more.
