Lisa Von D. — World Book Night

Last night, I was a “giver” for World Book Night. It was so much fun, from opening my Giver Boxes, with specially printed editions of Kate DiCamillo’s Because of Winn Dixie (thanks to Kate, who like all the authors, gave up royalties on these special editions, Candlewick and all the other publishers who donated books and the printers and binders who created the special editions)…

…to delighting kids with a free book (yes, the diner in the background on the left IS from Seinfeld).


…to the adults who wanted to get in on the act:

    I gave out The Things They Carried. It was so much fun.

    We had 3 staff members who had a great time on World Book Night. Barb was giving away copies of Hunger Games and one excited teen got right on his phone and said, Hey Dude, some old lady just gave me a copy of Hunger Games. It’s awesome.” We are actually thinking of doing our own book night in partnership with our Friends Group.
