WORLD BOOK DAY 2002 (article first published : 2002-02-23)

UNESCO has declared April 23 as World Book Day, it is also Shakespeare’s birthday and has become a day to celebrate the pleasures of reading, writing, and books.

In schools and libraries all over South Africa, children and parents will be writing stories, celebrating books, listening to writers read, buying books at book fairs and book sales. There will be storytelling, readings by well-known writers, exhibitions, and street performances.

Bookshops will offer discounts and special activities to promote the enjoyment of books and reading.

60,000 World Book day posters will be printed and distributed countrywide during March. This year’s poster slogan is Read where ever you are.

The Centre for the Book website, http://www.nlsa.ac.za/cb will publish a calendar of events as well as other information about World Book Day.
