World Book and Copyright Day in
Days to go:
World Book and Copyright Day is a global observance dedicated to promoting and celebrating the joy of books and reading. Initiated by UNESCO, the day seeks to encourage everyone to explore the pleasure of reading and value the contributions of those who have furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity, especially authors. Additionally, the day also highlights the importance of copyright laws and policies to ensure that the rightful authors are acknowledged and their works are protected.
World Book and Copyright Day has a rich history, dating back to 1995 when it was officially established by UNESCO. The date, 23rd April, was selected as it marks the death anniversary of William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, as well as the birth or death anniversary of several other prominent authors. For people in Australia, this day holds special significance as it highlights the rich literary culture and diversity in the country. The observance also encourages Australians to value and respect the rights of authors through appropriate copyright practices.
In Australia, World Book and Copyright Day is celebrated with a range of activities aimed at encouraging the love of reading and raising awareness about copyright protection. Schools, libraries, and cultural institutions across the country usually organise various events such as book reading sessions, author meet-and-greets, seminars and workshops on copyright laws. While the day is universally observed on 23rd April, Australia also commemorates this event alongside Australian Reading Hour in September, an initiative that encourages Australians to pick up a book and read for one hour.
