Be a Book Giver — Extended Deadline

Good news — the deadline to apply to give out books on World Book Night, Monday, April 23rd, has been extended.

Organizer Carl Lennertz says they’ve received hundreds of applications, with every state, city and town covered, but “the more the merrier” and he’s heard there are still people out there who want to be part of this program. The applications have been inspiring, he says,

 …the places the book givers are suggesting for their giveaway are as varied as America itself, from schools to nursing homes, coffeeshops to a soup kitchen. My favorite so far?  At a Little League game. And while I always knew in my heart, being a small town kid myself, that World Book Night might skew from big city and towards smaller cities and towns, one of my favorite suggestions so far is for someone to give away their books on the Staten Island Ferry.
