World Book Day is a yearly event, celebrated April 23rd, organized by UNESCO as a worldwide tribute to books and reading. It is a way to celebrate reading as well as fight against illiteracy. With 175 million adolescents in the world unable to read a single sentence, World Book Day is a way to raise awareness. More information about World Book Day and UNESCO
