World Book Day on 23 April 2016

World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Day) is a yearly event on 23 April. The day is organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), to promote reading, publishing and copyright.
