Happy Book Day 2015!
In 1995 UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) decided to celebrate World Book and Copyright Day on 23th April since that date is the anniversary of the death of Cervantes, of William Shakespeare, and of several other writers. Every year numerous events are organized in a lot of countries all over the world to promote books and reading. In Catalonia, Spain, today is Sant Jordi (Saint George’s Day) and people celebrate it exchanging books as well as roses, since it’s also the Day of the Rose.
