Volunteer book givers are central to World Book Night U.S., putting wonderful books into the hands of light or non-readers in their communities.
On April 23, 2012, U.S. book givers personally handed out half a million printed books in 5,800 towns and cities across the country. And we’re doing it again together this year!
We provide the free books, and the book givers seek out light or non-readers, especially people who may not have access to printed books for reasons of means or geography. Book givers receive 20 free paperback copies of one World Book Night title, not too many to carry but enough to share with a good number of potential new readers.
Applications to become a WBN 2013 Book Giver are now closed. To participate in WBN 2014, please sign up for our newsletter to ensure you are getting our news and updates. Meanwhile, don't forget to check our 2013 Book Picks; they are a great reading list!
Thank you for supporting World Book Night U.S.!
