World Book Night sets in March 2011
IT IS LAUNCHED TODAY (2 December 2010), the World Book Night is a special event that will encourage the lucky 20,000 book-givers to distribute the 25 chosen books on the night of Saturday, 5 March 2011.
To be considered as one of the book-givers, applicants have until Tuesday, 4 January 2011 to submit their online applications and the successful ones will be contacted on 28 January. The organizer will choose the book-givers according to the following criteria: a passion for reading, a commitment to spread that passion to others, the spread of givers throughout the UK and Ireland, and the need to have a diverse range of givers.
Finally, the givers must be aged 18 or over, must not be employed by or related to anyone employed by the publisher of the book chosen, and of course must be available to give books away on the night of March 5 2011. Note that the lucky givers will become founder members of World Book Night and they will be given the opportunity to share their experiences thru a social networking site.
