The Reading Night

UNESCO will celebrate the first edition of the Reading Night on 18 January at the Organization's Headquarters in Paris. This annual event, in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture, will be an opportunity to bring together actors who make reading a moment of encounter, of discovery of diversity, and of difference.
Since 2017, the Reading Night is celebrated in 32 countries. This year, UNESCO has chosen to place this event under the theme of "Reading without borders" to pay tribute to all those who make reading an opportunity to meet the Others.

Four meeting spaces will be proposed around as many themes:
- Reading for inclusion
- A space for young people
- Reading for tolerance
- World Readings
