Today is World Book and Copyright Day! This year’s theme, Reading, It’s My Right!, honours the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

“Books are at the intersection of some of the most essential human freedoms, primarily freedom of expression and freedom to publish. These are fragile freedoms.” — Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO

Every year on April 23rd, World Book and Copyright Day celebrates the power of books to bring people together and to share information.
