What is #WordsofTolerance?


Words can be as powerful as actions, books are our best allies in education. Regardless of who you are and where you come from, books will give you a unique perspective.

#WordsofTolerance is a social media campaign whose goal is to promote books and reading and spread the message of tolerance. It is launched alongside World Book and Copyright Day, celebrated by UNESCO every 23April.

The year 2016 is special, marking the 400th anniversary of the death of two exceptional writers: William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. We are curious to know which world author has inspired you by one of his/her memorable thoughts. Share your favorite quote and show us the best places to read or find books in your town. It doesn’t matter if you live in a big city, small town or a village, we would like to see all types of libraries and bookstores.
