World Book Night Kickoff and Giver Reception
Readings, Refreshments, and Book Distribution
On April 23, specially selected Givers all over the US, the UK, Ireland, and Germany will give away great books – for free! – to those who might not otherwise encounter them. Now in its third year, World Book Night is a celebration of reading, made possible by authors, publishers, readers, and bookstores and libraries around the country and around the world. Greenlight is proud to be a participating bookstore, and tonight we’ll hand over cartons of books to World Book Night Givers to give away the following Tuesday! To mark the occasion, we’ve asked a few of the Givers to read from or talk about the books they’ve selected to give away from this year’s World Book Night title list. There may also be a surprise celebrity guest or two to join in the celebration of reading! Join us for a joyous evening of sharing the books we love, followed by a wine reception for all attendees.
