World Book Day History
World Book and Copyright Day seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of reading books. This day aims to highlight the power of books and their ability to impart knowledge and values to readers. It reinforces the idea that books serve as windows into different worlds, both fictional and non-fictional. This day encourages people of all ages to understand the value of books and to read more. It also acknowledges those authors and artists who created the works and vows to continue to protect their work through copyrights.
World Book and Copyright Day was established in 1995 by UNESCO. It is observed annually on April 23rd, a date which remembers prominent authors such as Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare, and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega.
