World Book Night Directors hope to have 50 thousand book givers signed up by February 1st from all over the United States.
KOZI’s student intern and Chelan High School Junior, Cody LaPorte, has more about this worldwide event aimed at creating an opportunity for people to focus attention on books and reading.
35 thousand copies of each World Book Night title will be printed as special, not for resale paperbacks totaling over a million copes to be distributed worldwide.
The organization wants book givers to reach out to new or light readers, especially in underserved places like nursing homes, schools, hospitals and poor neighborhoods; but also in public gathering places like coffee shops and malls.
