World Book Night is a worldwide celebration of books and
reading, taking place on Tuesday 23 April.
In the UK, there will be hundreds of bookworms around the
country giving out free copies of this year’s chosen titles – all
in the aid of getting people to read, and possibly falling in love
with their new favourite book!
Here at Harrison Learning Centre, we’re excited about
celebrating this event with an evening of books and poetry. There
are two ways you can get involved! Firstly, we’re looking for
volunteers to help us share the love of reading with their fellow
students. We have twenty copies of Jackie Kay’s
powerful and haunting memoir, Red Dust Road, to
give away, and would love you to help us.
If you’re passionate about reading and would like to join in our
celebration of World Book Night, please take a look at the
information below and get in touch.
Twenty volunteers will be asked to come along to the Learning
Centre on 23 April 2013, where they can collect a
copy of the book and pass it on to another person. Help us to
spread the joy of a great book, and introduce somebody to the
wonderful world of reading!
