World Book and Copyright Day

By celebrating World Book Day throughout the world, UNESCO seeks to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property through copyright. The idea for this celebration originated in Catalonia where on 23 April, Saint George’s Day, a rose is traditionally given as a gift for each book sold.

Celebrate by giving a book or rose to the literature lover in your life!
