World Book and Copyright Day

World Book and Copyright Day - 23 April 2024


'Let's read, enrich, enhance and enlighten

Set the world to brighten

With thoughts and creativity

That will remain till posterity’

In keeping with the above thought and initiative of promoting the habit of reading across generations and cultures, the World Book and Copyright Day is celebrated every year on April 23.

The date holds great symbolism in the realm of world literature, serving as a poignant reminder of literary luminaries like William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. By embracing the theme for this year, "Read Your Way", aficionados of books acknowledge the pivotal role of choice and pleasure in cultivating a deep-seated passion for reading.

Marking the day, the UNESCO aims to promote global awareness and appreciation for books, reading, and intellectual property rights through World Book and Copyright Day celebrations.
