Let’s celebrate the World Book and Copyright Day all together!


World Book and Copyright Day is an annual event, celebrated all around the world to promote reading and the cultural aspects of books.
This year, a major event will take place on 23 April at UNESCO Headquarters to raise public awareness, especially among young people, about the publishing world.

Several activities undertaken by publishing professionals, artists and well-known institutions will familiarize young people with the traditional book and e-publishing techniques through practical workshops (typography, illustration, bookbinding, manga, etc.).

A selection of booksellers and publishing companies will also promote their books and share their passion for reading in organized booths.

To give an international dimension to the celebration, an interactive map featuring the events run by librarians, booksellers and publishers around the world will be produced.
