World Book and Copyright Day : 23 April
Books have long embodied the human capacity to conjure up worlds, both real and imagined, giving voice to the diversity of human experience. They help us share ideas, obtain information, and inspire admiration for different cultures, enabling far-reaching forms of dialogue between people across space and time.
To promote awareness on the benefits of reading books, World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day 2022 is observed every year on April 23. The important benefits of reading cannot be underestimated and this day is a reminder for everyone to take up books. Organised as an annual event by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) ever since 1995, the day is dedicated to pay respect to renowned authors like William Shakespeare, Miguel Cervantes, and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega who died this day.
The theme for World Book and Copyright Day 2022 is “Read, so you never feel low”. The motive is to enhance the scope of reading.
On World Book and Copyright Day, especially in uncertain times, we must cherish and defend books as symbols of hope and dialogue !!!
