The World Book Day is here again! World Book Day is a day designated by UNESCO for a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The celebration of World Book Day began over 90 years ago in Catalonia when roses and books were given as gifts to loved ones on a special day. It is celebrated on the 23rd of April each year.
To celebrate this year’s World Book Day, Farafina Books would be partnering with Chinedu Chidi, winner of the 2010 Debaters competition, to hold a book reading at Reagan Memorial Baptist Girls’ Secondary School.
For those who remember, we launched these book readings last year and it was a resounding success, of course with the help of Naeto C, RoofTop Mcs, Tosyn Bucknor and Toyin Akinosho.
This time around, Chinedu, The Debaters Season II champ, will be reading to the students of Reagan Memorial Baptist Girls’ Secondary School. He would also sensitize them on the importance of reading as well as give complimentary books to the school library.
Our hope is that this book reading would get our young ones to read, read, read!!!
The book reading comes up on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 by 10a.m at Reagan Memorial Baptist Girls’ Secondary School, 23, Commercial Avenue, Sabo-Yaba, Lagos.
See you there!
