Originally created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is celebrated in over 100 countries, encouraging people to discover the pleasure of reading.
World Book Day founder, Baroness Gail Rebuck, recalls:
“We wanted to do something to reposition reading and our message is the same today as it was then – that reading is fun, relevant, accessible, exciting, and has the power to transform lives.”
