World Book Night 2016

Reasons to Stay Alive has been chosen as a World Book Night book! World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books that takes place on 23 April. It sees passionate volunteers give out hundreds of thousands of books in their communities to share their love of reading with people who don’t read regularly or own books. World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that inspires people to become confident and enthusiastic readers to help give them an equal chance in life. More information is here from The Bookseller. You can apply to be a volunteer here.
